The Hartford Yard Goats are hoping to host a future Eastern League All-Star Game, team president Tim Restall said.
The Hartford Yard Goats will play as the Hartford Whirly Birds on Thursday, June 28. The name was the runner-up in the team's original naming contest before moving from Hartford to New Britain in 2016.
Dunkin' Donuts Park, the Hartford home to the Yard Goats, was named the "Best Double-A Ballpark in America," for the second straight year.
The Hartford Yard Goats announced Dunkin' Donuts Park will host a night of comedy on Tues., June 19.
