Located in Richmond, VA, The Diamond was home of the Richmond Braves (the Atlanta Braves AAA affiliate) from 1985 until the team moved in 2009 to Lawrenceville, GA. It hosted the 1992 AAA All-Star Game. In 2010 it became the home of the AA Eastern League Richmond Flying Squirrels.
The Diamond was constructed during the 1984-85 offseason on the site of Richmond's previous ballpark, Parker Field.
When the Flying Squirrels moved in, they tarped off several rows of the upper deck and replaced all of the seating in the lower deck. These moves dropped the capacity of the ballpark by over 2500 seats.
The Diamond is also the home of Virginia Commonwealth University baseball.
