BOWIE, Md. — Richmond Flying Squirrels lefty Ty Blach returned to Creighton University last fall to complete degree requirements. While in Omaha, Blach took classes with a friend who could insightfully discuss the San Francisco Giants, the AA Squirrels’ parent club.
Creighton’s Doug McDermott, the consensus NCAA basketball player of the year, “is a huge Giants fan, so it was a lot of fun being able to talk to him about that,” Blach said.
