Playing Ball

An ad hoc group of Richmonders has started a petition drive to put the Shockoe Bottom baseball stadium issue squarely on the ballot for November’s elections. The Citizens Referendum Group aims to appeal to voters to support its effort to see that before any groundbreaking occurs, the rich history of the neighborhood is studied and protected.

Meanwhile, it is April 1st, so there‘s this:
At last, spring has sprung! On Thursday a new season will begin for Richmond's beloved baseball club, the Flying Squirrels. Can't you already hear the music swelling in the distance? It's a jazzy, a cappella version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." The mellifluous Mayor Dwight Jones is singing lead, with the dulcet harmony of the Councilmanic Nine backing him up.
