On May 20 Amie Stumbo of Richmond became the fifth million fan to watch the Richmond Flying Squirrels at The Diamond.
As a reward, she received a “Five Millionth Fan” jersey and two season tickets for the remainder of the 2023 season and all of 2024.
She also will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on July 4 and be able to watch fireworks from the field.
Business has been booming on Arthur Ashe Boulevard since the San Francisco Giants moved its AA Eastern League affiliate to Richmond.
The Squirrels lead all the 30AAteams this season in total attendance and average per game.
