The Richmond Flying Squirrels were created in 2010. The team joined the league when the Connecticut Defenders moved to town. The Flying Squirrels nickname was chosen in a "Name The Team" contest. The other finalists were Rock Hoppers, Flatheads, Rhinos and Hush Puppies. Hambones had also been a finalist but was elminated after the NAACP pointed out some negative connotations in the word, though the team intended it as an homage to the famous Virginia Hams.
