RICHMOND, Va. Ã¢â‚¬â€œ WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen him rebound, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen him throw down some dunks, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen him block shots, but on Tuesday night the Richmond area will get to see something new from former Ram Larry Sanders, throwing a baseball.
Sanders will be a special guest of the Richmond Flying Squirrels on Tuesday night at The Diamond when they host the Reading Phillies in a 7:05 p.m. contest. He will be on hand to throw out the first pitch as well as being available for autographs for his beloved fans.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The city of Richmond and the VCU community are major reasons why I got this great opportunity in the NBA,Ã¢â‚¬Â Sanders said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“This was just an opportunity that was presented to me and I couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pass up a chance to thank so many of those fans that supported me during my time at VCU.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Sanders became the second straight Ram to be drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft when the Milwaukee Bucks selected the Fort Pierce, Fla. native with the 15th pick. He excelled in the week long summer league and looks to be a major contributor to the Bucks this season.
