Richmond Renegades abruptly fold
Less than seven months after the Richmond Braves played their final baseball game at The Diamond before moving to Georgia, the city's other major professional sports franchise has announced they will fold. Hockey's Richmond Renegades announced Thursday, March 26 that they will cease operations, effective immediately. "There isn't a financial stone my business partners and I have left unturned," says team president Alan Harvie in a message on the team's website. "There just simply isn't the money available." The Renegades played their last home game at Richmond Coliseum on Saturday, March 21.
