Flying Squirrels Released Their 2023 Game Schedule

The current season isn’t over but you can’t start planning your Flying Squirrel watching for next season.




The Richmond Flying Squirrels released their 2023 game schedule, as set by Major League Baseball, on Tuesday afternoon. The Flying Squirrels will open the 2023 season at The Diamond on Friday, April 7 against the Reading Fightin Phils.


Game times and ticket information for the 2023 season will be announced at a later date.

“As we continue to have success in 2022, the planning process for 2023 has long since begun,” Flying Squirrels CEO Todd “Parney” Parnell said. “Having our 2023 game dates will really accelerate this process. As we look to finish the 2022 season strong with our final two homestands and the Eastern League Playoff games at The Diamond beginning September 22, we are looking forward to another exciting season of Flying Squirrels baseball and are targeting our 13th consecutive Opening Night sellout on April 7.”

The 2023 season begins with a three-game series against the Reading Fightin Phils at The Diamond from April 7-9.

The Flying Squirrels will once again be home on Independence Day, hosting the Bowie Baysox on Tuesday, July 4. The teams’ annual Independence Day fireworks celebration has become a Richmond tradition with sellout crowds every season since the franchise’s first year in 2010.

The final regular-season homestand of the season will be September 5-10 against the Akron RubberDucks.

Once again, Eastern League teams will play a 138-game regular-season schedule. The Flying Squirrels, who are leading all 30 Double-A teams in average home attendance this year, will again play 69 home games in 2023.

The Flying Squirrels will mostly play six-game series from Tuesdays through Sundays, with exceptions including a three-game set against Reading to open the year at The Diamond from April 7-9, a six-game road series in Reading from June 28-July 3 and a three-game road series at Harrisburg from July 14-16 coming out of the mid-season break.
