In just under fourteen months, baseball will be played in downtown Hartford. The new minor league ballpark, the centerpiece of a massive development in the Downtown North section of town, will be ready to go by April 2016. That’s the word of the mayor, the city council president, and the team owner.
In an interview that aired on Face the State this past Sunday at 11 AM on WFSB, Mayor Pedro Segarra, City Council President Shawn Wooden and New Britain Rock Cats owner Josh Solomon, talked about the project, for which groundbreaking was held this week.
The trio also talked about the new contest to name the team, and you add your suggestion right here: http://www.hartfordplaysball2016.com/
Whatever the name may be, I vote the colors be Hartford Whalers green and blue. Is there really another color scheme symbolizes the capital city any better than that combo? You know there will be fans in the stands of the ballpark wearing Whalers gear, so why not match them!
