New Britain goes with Bees
We have a name and logo for the newest Atlantic League franchise is New Britain, Connecticut. The “Bees” will host the Revolution on Opening Day 2016, April 21 at New Britain Stadium.
In addition to playing in the team’s inaugural series (four games), it won’t take long for the Revs and Bees to get acquainted, as York hosts New Britain to begin their second homestand of the season, May 10-15. Those six games feature three against the Bees and the Sugar Land Skeeters, so bring your “fly” swatters but keep the infestation jokes to a minimum.
New Britain will be one of three minor league clubs with a “Bees” moniker, joining the Salt Lake Bees of the Pacific Coast League and the Burlington Bees of the Midwest League, who were of course managed by former Revolution first baseman Chad Tracy last season.
