The Hartford Yard Goats are hoping to host a future Eastern League All-Star Game, team president Tim Restall said.
"The Yard Goats would be honored to host the Eastern League All-Star Game when it becomes available. We feel like Dunkin' Donuts Park and the Greater Hartford community would be an excellent place to showcase the summer classic," Restall told NBC Connecticut in a statement.
The Eastern League has already assigned host locations for the All-Star Games to be played through the 2020 season, so the first game Hartford could potentially host would be in 2021.
Restall said he applied to host a future game last year once the team was playing at its new Hartford home, Dunkin' Donuts Park.
The Trenton Thunder hosted this summer's All-Star Game. The 2019 Game is scheduled to be played in Richmond. Binghamton is set to play host in 2020. No further game locations have been announced.
The game is typically played in July and features the top players of the Eastern League, part of Minor League Baseball's Double-A level.
