Squirrels Flying to the Moon

Richmond connecting moon landing and feature film in a big 2019 promo.

The Flying Squirrels are already burying some nuts for next season.  This one looks well time and well considered:

  • Team will wear special space suit jerseys* inspired by the ones worn on the Moon by Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin during their historic Apollo 11 mission in 1969.
  • First 1,000 fans age 15 and older will receive an astronaut-themed bobblehead
    A postgame fireworks show will follow the game.
  • Flying Squirrels space suit jerseys will be auctioned during the game on July 20 with proceeds to benefit math and science education programs in Richmond-area schools.
  • Commemorating the release of Universal Pictures “First Man,” which chronicles the story of Armstrong and the Apollo 11 mission, the Flying Squirrels have partnered with CinéBistro at Stony Point Fashion Park to offer a limited-availability ticket package. The first 50 fans to purchase the package will receive eight Field Level tickets to Lunar Landing Night, a guaranteed astronaut-themed bobblehead and a pair of movie passes to CinéBistro.
