Attention referendum petition circulators: The Richmond Flying Squirrels home opener is on Thurs., Apr. 10., at the Diamond. Their game with Altoona starts at 6:35 p.m.
Which means thousands of local baseball fans will be going to the game between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. No doubt, many have some interest in the baseball stadium issue. Yes, plenty will be from the suburbs, but some good number of them will be city voters.
During the seven-game home-stand (Apr. 10-16) the opportunity to gather signatures will be there before and after each game. At this writing, I have no idea how the Squirrels management will take to petitions being worked/signed inside the Diamond during games, but for CRG petition workers on the sidewalk, it would seem unlikely that would cause a problem for anybody.
