Nothing says "spring is here!" quite like the start of baseball season. And depending on where you go in Connecticut, you may find locals rooting for major league teams from New York or Boston. However, you will also find professional and minor league teams drawing fans to local ballparks all over the state—not just for the sports, but for family-friendly events that include music, food, giveaways and fireworks. Tickets are reasonable, the fun is contagious. And now that the capital city Hartford has its own team and a brand new ballpark, there’s never been a better time to enjoy America’s favorite pastime by cheering on Connecticut teams!
