The UConn Baseball team will play four games at Dunkin Donuts Park in Downtown Hartford, home of the Hartford Yard Goats, during the 2018 season. The Huskies will play a pair of games against Tulane (April 27-28) and Houston (May 11-12).
“We are thrilled to return to beautiful Dunkin’ Donuts Park for four dates in 2018,” said head coach Jim Penders. “Last year’s game was a great success and we are looking to build on that excitement with what promises to be two great series.”
Last season, the Huskies played their first-ever game at the new ballpark and defeated ECU, 6-0, in front of a raucous 2,828 crowd in Hartford. Tim Cate logged a complete game shutout while Alex LeFevre provided the fireworks with a three-run homer in the third inning.
“It’s exciting to think about our baseball team playing two series at Dunkin’ Donuts Park this spring,” director of athletics David Benedict said. “Last year’s game in Downtown Hartford provided a tremendous atmosphere for our team to compete in and for our fans to enjoy. I hope UConn Nation will come out in full force for these four games in 2018.”
