Virginia Commonwealth University and the Richmond Flying Squirrels agreed last September to a nonbinding memorandum of understanding, expressing mutual interest in exploration of the feasibility of a new ballpark for one year. With the anniversary approaching, they apparently haven’t swung and missed. VCU and the Squirrels play home games at The Diamond, which opened in 1985. The document, dated Sept. 28, 2016, represents “a good-faith acknowledgement of the parties’ current intentions as to the development, construction and use of a new baseball stadium and a commitment from each party to work collaboratively with the other in regard to the matters contained herein for a period of one year.” The MOU was signed by Ed McLaughlin, VCU’s vice president and director of athletics, and Lou DiBella, the Squirrels’ president and managing general partner. –  JOHN O’CONNOR, richmond.comRead More
