RICHMOND, VA. — It’s summer and we are taking the day off from Instagram. Instead we invited our friends and neighbors The Flying Squirrels to step in and show you what their world is like.

Haven’t you always wondered what does on there before the crowds arrive and it’s game time? Well, we hope to help you see life through their camera phones for today’s #CBS6TakeoverTuesday.

We plan to do this every Tuesday this summer, and at the end, you vote for who hosted the best takeover day. Then we will donate $200 to the winner’s chosen charity.

Today the Squirrels take on the Akron Rubber Ducks and its Muhammad Ali Tribute Night.

That’s why the Squirrels will be wearing unique jerseys featuring a butterfly and a bee on the front and boxing gloves with numerals on the back; to honor the life of Muhammad Ali.

The jerseys will be auctioned off to raise funds for Parkinson’s research.

We plan to do this every Tuesday this summer, and at the end, you vote for who hosted the best takeover day. Then we will donate $200 to the winner’s chosen charity.

The Squirrels have chosen their charity, Flying Squirrels Charities, as the recipient if they win the contest. They focus on “renovating Richmond’s recreation to provide recreational opportunities for youth in the city. ”
