(Monday, October 28, 2019) - The Futures Collegiate Baseball League (“FCBL”) has announced that New Britain Stadium has been selected to host the circuit’s 2020 All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 14.
“We look forward to hosting the showcase event of the season for our new league affiliate,” said Bees GM Brad Smith. “The All-Star Game traditionally is the highlight of the season, and 2020 will be no different.
The 2020 FCBL All-Star identity (see logo, above) was developed by Skye Design Studios (“SDS”), a national leader in sport branding and identity design based in Florham Park, New Jersey.
"All-Star events are a great opportunity to celebrate both the host city and club in a fun and memorable way,” said Skye Dillon, owner of SDS. “New Britain's motto, 'industry fills the hive and enjoys the honey', was a natural starting point for this particular identity, and its nickname 'Hard-Hittin' New Britain' gave us another unique layer - and convenient baseball reference - to integrate. Likewise, the design takes on the same style as the Bees' team branding and features a hard-hittin' Sting above the newest city landmark, the Beehive Bridge."
Ticket packages, with prices starting at just $5 a ticket, are on sale now by calling 860-826-BEES (2337) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.NBBees.com.
