Ross is Back in Richmond

If you get excited knowing that former Major League pitcher Ross Grimsley is back as pitching coach of the Richmond Flying Squirrels, welcome to The Hall of Very Good...you're among friends.

Here's what the San Francisco Giants Double-A affiliate had to say via a press release.

In conjunction with their parent club, the 2010 World Series Champion San Francisco Giants, the Richmond Flying Squirrels are pleased to announce their field staff for the 2011 season. Veteran skipper Dave Machemer will assume the role of Manager in Richmond in 2011. Pitching Coach Ross Grimsley will return for his second season with the Squirrels, and Ken Joyce will serve as the team's Hitting Coach.

This will be Grimsley's second year with Richmond and his 13th with the Giants organization.  Last season, his hurlers ranked fourth in the Eastern League in both ERA (3.71) and runs allowed (586).

Now, I bring up Grimsley's current employment so I can share this with you.

At The Hall of Very Good...we've been using the lefty's likeness as the site's visage for some time now.  Designed a couple of years ago by graphic artist "Foodstamp" Davis (I can get you in touch with him if you're interested)...you can now wear Grimsley's likeness across your chest.

And honestly, why wouldn't you?

Head on over to Zazzle.com now and pick one up!  Prices vary depending on the style and you can feel free to email me and let me know if there is a different style, color, etc. that suits you best.
