Twitter Tuesday: Richmond Flying Squirrels

All this week we’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of Ross Grimsley’s Major League debut and this week's Twitter Tuesday is no different.

Grimsley, of course, pitched 11 big league seasons, but did you know that in 1989, he began a second career as a Minor League pitching coach?

It’s true.

Currently, “Scuz” is in his second season with the Double-A affiliate of the World Champion San Francisco Giants…the social media savvy Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Now, I’m not sure who is doing the actual tweeting for the team, but whoever it is…they’re doing it with just the right mix of live tweeting, posting pictures and keeping their followers engaged with team promotions.

And, of course, there’s this:

Looks like a reinactment of the truffle shuffle from the Goonies more than the chicken dance. but the crowd loves it!

Want to know who is coming out to The Diamond, who won the Uncle Bob’s Self Storage raffle or the process of a player selecting their walk up music…follow the Richmond Flying Squirrels at @gosquirrels  now!

In the meantime, why not watch this "interview" with team mascot Nutzy!  C'mon...you've got something better to do?
