When you think of Virginia Tech head football coach, you may think of something like “special teams.” What you probably didn’t think of though, is Minor League Baseball. However, Minor League Baseball does think about Frank Beamer.
Tonight, the Richmond Flying Squirrels held a Frank Beamer Bobblehead Night, and gave away 2000 toys featuring the Hokies coach. Here’s a photo of the bobbleheads:

It’s pretty strange that the Flying Squirrels did this promotion considering Richmond is over three hours from Blacksburg, but there probably are a lot of Va Tech fans in the area.
Earlier this season, the team gave away Shaka Smart bobbleheads, too.
