For a second straight offseason, the Biscuits are searching for a radio voice.
Jon Laaser has left the Biscuits to join the Richmond Flying Squirrels, a Double-A team that is starting play in Virginia next year.
Biscuits general manager Greg Rauch said he has already received about 50 applications and expects more during Montgomery’s search. He said the search won’t be completed until at least December at baseball’s winter meetings in Indianapolis.
“We’re happy for Jon, but this was a great opportunity with an ownership group he’s familiar with,” Rauch said. “We hate to see him leave, and he did an outstanding job.”
The Flying Squirrels were the Connecticut Defenders last year and are members of the Eastern League. Laaser came to Montgomery last offseason after spending one year with the Class A team in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
