Nutzy going green with GRTC

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond Flying Squirrels opens its new season this week and to kick things off, Nutzy the Flying Squirrel is going green.

The Squirrels and GRTC are encouraging people to be eco-friendly by taking the bus to games.

And to make it even more fun, they're making it a contest.

Starting Monday, the first fan to find Nutzy on a GRTC bus, give him a high five, and tell him the password of the day will win a prize, which we're hearing includes tickets to the opening game on Thursday.

Going green with Nutzy runs Monday through Wednesday.
