Episode 2: The Field(s)

I want to get this spoiler out of the way right at the top here: Hartford has baseball, the Yard Goats have a ballpark, and the ballpark — after a 372-day delay — has a fully-functional baseball field where real, live, professional baseball games are actually played.

This episode, we take a look at that now fully-functional baseball field and what it takes to maintain it. And we'll look, too, at Hartford's other pro ball fields -- the Hartford Base Ball Grounds and Clarken/Bulkeley Field -- from decades past.
