bobp@herald-mail.com If Gene Richards has his way, there is one thing Hagerstown Suns fans won't be doing much of this season. Blinking. That's the kind of team the manager wants the Suns to be - one with oodles of "Now you see them, now you don't" excitement. The kind that's in constant motion, kind of like a lottery machine filled with ping pong balls. And if the Suns can follow Richards' plan, it could be an enjoyable 25th anniversary season for everyone except Hagerstown opponents, starting tonight when the Suns host the West Virginia Power in the South Atlantic League season opener at Municipal Stadium.
