Flying Squirrels adding to mascot corral, seeking new name

Richmond Flying SquirrelsThe Richmond Flying Squirrels (Class AA; Eastern League) are adding a new acorn mascot to the mix, and they’re seeking help from the public in selecting a name.

The twist: fans are being asked to vote on a final selection, but the voting is available both on the team’s website — — or through the Flying Squirrels iPhone application. We’ve seen a number of teams release iPhone apps, and this is a nice interactive use for them.

The Flying Squirrels’ new acorn mascot will be unveiled Thursday, February 24 at 2:00 p.m. at the Empire Theater at Theater IV on Broad Street.
