RICHMOND, Va. — The Richmond Flying Squirrels are adding a party deck to the Diamond. It’s just one of several planned upgrades to the baseball stadium ahead of the 2016 season.

“A brand new party deck, containing a bar and rail top seating, will be installed down the right field line. This elevated gathering place will feature high top tables with a clear view of the field and will be open to all fans (21 & older) at no additional cost throughout the course of each game,” the team announced in an email to fans. “In addition to the new area, the Squirrels are upgrading concourse and gate lighting for better visibility, improving the Kids Zone with more fun and games, adding electronic concessions menu boards for a more vibrant look and repainting the scoreboard.”

Flying Squirrels Chief Executive Chuck Domino said the team would continue working to improve the Diamond, despite public efforts to lobby the city for a new stadium.
