More news out of Richmond: the Richmond Flying Squirrels (Class AA; Eastern League) landed Kevin Bacon to appear at The Diamond tomorrow night during what’s sure to be a delicious promotion: Tribune to Bacon Night.
“Kevin is a busy guy, so we’re thrilled that he was able to find time in his schedule to make an appearance on Tribute to Bacon Night,” said Flying Squirrels Vice President and COO Todd “Parney” Parnell. “Having him here will definitely add some extra sizzle to a night we were already planning to ham up.”
Bacon, a Chesterfield County native for more than 35 years, is currently a detective with the Chesterfield County Police Department. He works with the unit that supports the Chesterfield County and Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program. Bacon was recently elected as the Area Director for the Virginia Crime Stoppers Association after spending more than 10 years on his current assignment. He is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with a bachelor’s degree in Administration of Justice.
In addition to his professional pursuits, Bacon is also an active member in Christian Life. He enjoys spending time with his four-year-old daughter as well as golfing, soccer, and voice work. His favorite movie titles featuring the actor, Kevin Bacon, include “Apollo 13,” “A Few Good Men,” and “Footloose.”
As part of Tribute to Bacon Night, Kevin Bacon will throw out a ceremonial first pitch, be available to sign autographs on the AAA Ultimate Fan Zone Main Stage, and will assist in the Flying Squirrels on-field promotions during the game. Fans can enter to win a year-long supply of bacon courtesy of the Virginia Pork Industry Board and Smithfield Foods, and all fans will receive a coupon for a discount offer on their next bacon purchase.
