    The Hartford Yard Goats have captured a large fan base over the two seasons the minor league baseball team has been in existence and Ballpark Digest has chosen the local club as the “2017 Team of the Year.” 

    The award comes after the team’s inaugural year at the new park, Dunkin’ Donuts Park, since construction delays kept the team from playing at home the season before.

    Earlier this year, the ballpark won the fan vote for Ballpark Digest’s “Best Double-A Ballpark.

    The Yard Goats said the Team of the Year Award is given to “the club that made the biggest mark on the industry with improved operations, increased attendance and noticeable buzz.”

    “This award really shows that our fans are the best in the business,” Yard Goats general manager Mike Abramson said in a statement. “To look around the ballpark and see the stands full each night says a lot about this community. We thank Ballpark Digest for this honor and we can’t wait to play ball in April of 2018.”

    The Hartford Yard Goats are the Double-A Eastern League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.

    The Yard Goats will open the 2018 season on Thursday, April 5 at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, with a 7:05 p.m. start time, against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
