RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - "We promised we would have baseball back and we've done it," said Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones.

The announcement came just yesterday, a new team will soon play ball at The Diamond.

The Connecticut Defenders are moving to Richmond for the 2010 season.

The new team is already investing more than a $1.5 million into the stadium to make it their home.
