RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - America's favorite past time is currently played at The Diamond but if some get their way, the Richmond Flying Squirrels could be hitting it out of the park a little further south on the Boulevard.
According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the city of Richmond may be looking to the 30-acre Parker Field complex just south of The Diamond.
Right now, the area is used as a maintenance site for city vehicles.
The city would outsource its fleet operations instead, making room for a possible ball park.
But Mayor Dwight Jones hasn't discussed a site or timetable for a new stadium.
Top brass with the Flying Squirrels and minor league baseball say a new park is necessary to ensure the long-term future of baseball in Richmond.
Mayor Jones says he's meeting with team owners this week.
