Since then, the role of the RMA has been expanded, and it currently owns and operates other facilities, including a number of parking decks and The Diamond, home stadium of the Richmond Braves minor league baseball team until 2008, and the current home of the Richmond Flying Squirrels. The Authority also operates historic Main Street Station on behalf of the City of Richmond.
