RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Saturday was VCU night at the Diamond, which meant some familiar faces showed up at the Richmond Flying Squirrels game.

Former VCU basketball players Joey Rodriguez, Ed Nixon, and Eric Maynor, as well as current VCU basketball player Johnny Williams, each threw out the ceremonial first pitch. They were also on hand to sign autographs and greet the crowd.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels took on the Hartford Yard Goats and beat them 9-4, snapping Hartford's seven-game winning streak.
