Tyler Strikes a Chord with Richmond Baseball Fans

Ken-PitchUMW Athletics Director Ken Tyler earned the admiration of Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball fans when he threw a perfect strike to kick-off Fredericksburg Night at the Diamond. Tyler joined more than 150 Richmond-area alums and nearly 500 baseball fans from throughout Fredericksburg and surrounding counties in what is becoming a highly anticipated end-of-summer tradition.
