Hartford Yard Goats Countdown to the Home Opener


It’s time to play ball in Hartford! The Yard Goats returned to the diamond Thursday evening at Dunkin’ Donuts Park for their home opener against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. 

The first pitch was at 7:05 p.m. 

The Yard Goats came into this game after a week on the road after starting the season in Richmond, then Harrisburg.

Now they’re home to face the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and came into this game 1 and 6, but that made the night all the more exciting!

They had a big crowd Thursday night. The Yard Goats won 10-5!

News 8’s Suzie Hunter has more on how the team is getting ready for the game in the video above.
