RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--It was a special viewing at the Byrd Theatre yesterday as the Richmond Flying Squirrels introduced their new mascot.

The name of the mascot is Nutzy. The name was entered by Terry Guevara of Richmond. The name Nutzy was selected from nearly 3,500 entries.

Todd Parnell from the Flying Squirrels said that they really felt the name Nutzy fit the fun, playful personality they expect the mascot to have.

Parnell went on to say that he thinks kids are going to see Nutzy as the superhero type.
