Richmond Flying Squirrels
Memories of the cartoon Rocky and Bullwinkle Show abound in Richmond, Virginia, where the local Double-A affiliate for the San Francisco Giants call home. The team was originally located in Connecticut and known as the Defenders, but held a fan vote to rename the team when it arrived, resulting in a fun and family-friendly logo. The mascot Nutzy has proven popular with fans and makes appearances throughout the local community during the offseason, sometimes with his mascot partner, Nutasha.
