2015 Richmond Flying Squirrels - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

Like John "Hannibal" Smith, I love it when a plan comes together and what I don't love is when a plan falls apart. I intended to a story and some photos of a fresh and new fitted last Friday but my plan was beset by sweltering heat at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.

Even though my scenario was temporarily halted, I consider myself a resilient man so I'm going to show those photos today. With no further ado, I present to you this week's Fresh Fitted which is the cap worn by the team of Virginia's capital, the Richmond Flying Squirrels. 

It's been a while since I've featured work from Brandiose The Flying Squirrels identity was one of the agency's earliest creations when it was known as Plan B Branding and I appreciate that his body's silhouette resembles Virginia's footprint on the map of the U.S.

Cap logos of ficticious animals with clenched teeth is Brandiose's calling card and this logo is the progenitor of similar logos they've used for Lehigh IronPigs, Akron RubberDucks and my hometown team, the Norfolk Tides which sadly was not well-recieved upon introduction.

Standard inside tags and stickers. 

Made in China. Womp Womp.

Here's Richmond's mascot, Nutzy the Flying Squirrel... acting nutty. 

He's a far cry from Diamond Duck who was the Richmond Braves' mascot from 1996-2008. Upon his introduction Nutzy was seen as the Poochie of minor league mascots but the story of fans warming up to him was detailed by Sportslogo and going by this this recent article on the Norfolk Tides rebrand a similar situation is unfolding in Hampton Roads.
