NEW BRITAIN–Play ball!

FOX 61 was on hand at the New Britain Bees game on Tuesday night to support the team, and a VIP from our team had the honor of throwing out the ceremonial first pitch: meteorologist Joe Furey!

The Bees were playing at home for the first time in more than a week, and faced off against the Lancaster Barnstormers.

Unfortunately, Joe’s spin on the ball wasn’t enough to help the Bees win: the home team lost 12-2.

The Bees play at New Britain Stadium, located at 230 John Karbonic Way. The new team is now 39-42 for the season.

The Bees will play at home through Thursday against the Barnstormers, with a doubleheader on Wednesday and a fourth game in the series on Thursday. After that, the team heads down to Bridgeport for a three-game series against the Bluefish.
