The Bees will open their regular season on Thursday, July 2 with a 6:35pm contest against the Worcester Bravehearts at New Britain Stadium. The Bees return to the field follows the season's original May 28 start being delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

All tickets will be just $7 and, new for 2020, parking will be FREE.

All parties worked in a coordinated effort with, and under the guidelines provided by, the State of Connecticut. Mr. Lupo will be on hand to throw out the first pitch on opening night, signaling New Britain's official return to the baseball field.
"We are extremely pleased to be able to provide the community of Central Connecticut with an affordable, family entertainment option this summer," said Bees GM Brad Smith.
