HARTFORD — The Hartford Yard Goats are now offering all of their full-time, part-time, and seasonal employees discounted college tuition.

The team is partnering with Albertus Magnus College in New Haven. The college will allow employees to save 10 percent on accelerated undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as a waiver on application fees. These courses will allow employees to complete their degrees at a quicker pace while ensuring time needed to earn a living.

Yard Goats Assistant General Manager Mike Abramson said in a statement:

“This unique benefit is another great way to help us attract great employees and at the same time help better the lives of our staff, the majority of whom are Hartford residents. Fans have told us overwhelmingly they love the friendly & knowledgeable staff at the park, and we want to ensure that continues.”

Sr. Anne Kilbride, President of Albertus Magnus College said in a release:

“Albertus Magnus College is delighted to welcome employees of the Hartford Yard Goats Baseball Club. We are confident that the employees will find beneficial academic and student friendly programs designed for working adults at Albertus.”
