Watch Sabrina get "Squirreled Up" at The Diamond

By Phil Riggan – bio | email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – NBC12's Sabrina Squire met with Richmond Flying Squirrels' broadcaster Anthony Opperrmann and gets "Squirreled Up" before Thursday's season-opener at The Diamond.

Watch the video as Opperrmann gives Sabrina a behind-the-scenes tour and shows off all the new amenities, Flying Squirrels additions to the stadium and tidbits to enhance the game for fans.

New seats in the lower and upper decks, more intimate seating capacity, new locker room, scoreboard, family-friendly areas, concessions, suites and -- of course -- the souvenier shop.

Sabrina will be anchoring from The Diamond before the 7 p.m. game Thursday and NBC12 will have plenty of coverage from all angles as baseball returns to Richmond.

Menez will make his first home start for the Flying Squirrels on Friday, but burst onto the scene in his AA debut, tossing six shutout innings and picking up a win at Harrisburg this past Saturday.
