Video: Rozzell throws first pitch at Flying Squirrels game

In what’s becoming a right of spring for graduating VCU basketball players, Brandon Rozzell was on hand at the Richmond Flying Squirrels home opener to throw out the season’s first pitch.

Rozzell, nicknamed “The Mayor”, and quite possibly a serious candidate after scoring 26 points in 28 minutes of play in VCU’s round of 64 blowout of Georgetown, is one of the many VCU players making the rounds following VCU’s historic Final 4 run.

The senior guard was greeted with a standing ovation, and chants of “V-C-U” by the sold out Diamond crowd. Rozzell checked the imaginary runner at second base, and delivered a “low” strike, quite possibly a changeup on the gorgeous Richmond evening.
