The New Britain Rock Cats are hosting the 2013 Eastern League All-Star Game on July 10 at New Britain Stadium.
The two-day All-Star festivities will also include additional community events beginning on July 9 and continuing through July 10.
“We are extremely honored that the Eastern League has chosen the Rock Cats to host the 2013 All-Star Game,” said Rock Cats owner Josh Solomon. “This is going to be a terrific event for baseball fans and families throughout the region and we look forward to showcasing the future stars of major league baseball right here at New Britain Stadium.”
“The Eastern League is very excited to be bringing our premier event back to New Britain after the city previously served as an outstanding host of the event in 2003,” said Eastern League President Joseph McEacharn. “The event will be returning to New Britain next season thanks in large part to the efforts of their new ownership group, led by Josh Solomon, to deliver this event for their fans. We are looking forward to showcasing the Major League stars of tomorrow to the outstanding fans of the New Britain Rock Cats, and are equally pleased to highlight Connecticut and the city of New Britain to the entire Eastern League.”
The Rock Cats last hosted the All-Star Game in 2003 in front of a standing room crowd at New Britain Stadium.
