RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The president of Richmond’s Flying Squirrels baseball team says the team’s future in the city is uncertain after years of stalled plans to build a new stadium.

Multiple news outlets report Lou DiBella released a strongly-worded letter Wednesday morning pushing for something to be done. The team’s lease at their current stadium, The Diamond, expires at the end of next season. DiBella says The Diamond is outdated and not a long-term home for the team. Efforts from the city and surrounding counties to help relocate the team out of the stadium have repeatedly fallen through.

The Flying Squirrels came to Richmond six years ago. The minor league team replaced the Braves, which left the city in part because of a lack of plans for a new stadium.
