With the Richmond Flying Squirrels (Class AA; Eastern League) mired in a 15-game losing streak, VP & COO Todd “Parney” Parnell is taking matters into his own hands, swearing off showers and donning the orange RVA uniform until the team wins.
Parney has suited up and will join the team in Altoona for Monday’s game. The Squirrels have also hunted the greater Richmond area for a novelty horseshoe to hang over the Squirrely Gates and will urge fans to bring their lucky items to the next home game on Friday, May 8th if the losing streak is still in effect.
“The Flying Squirrels front office staff and players have a unique and special relationship. We wanted to find a positive way to join forces with them to end this streak,” said Parney as he laced up his cleats. “We know they are giving their all every night and we want to give our all, smell and all, to show them we are right alongside them.”
