BRISTOL â€“ Muzzy Field has a new scoreboard for this yearâ€™s Bristol Blues season thanks to a donation from Thomaston Savings Bank.
â€śWeâ€™re incredible grateful to Thomaston Savings Bank for this gift to us and to the city,â€ť said Sarah Lucian, director of community development for the Bristol Blues. â€śThomaston Savings Bank has been a great supporter of the community in general.â€ť
It replaced an older scoreboard, which she said needed regular maintenance.
Stephen Lewis, president at Thomaston Savings Bank, said the bank is proud to fund projects like this that â€śenhance our community. We are excited for the installation of the new Muzzy Field scoreboard and are looking forward to the Bluesâ€™ season,â€ť he said.
Lucian said the Bristol Bluesâ€™ season begins June 2, with Jordan Scheiner as the new general manager and Tim Binkoski as field manager. There will be 35 college players coming in and staying with host families throughout the season, where they will travel to games throughout New England.
â€śWe will have 22 home games this year,â€ť Lucian said. â€śWe will also be partnering with a bunch of different organizations and great initiatives on each home game night. These partnerships will be announced on Friday, April 29 via our social media and website.â€ť
Tickets to Bristol Blues games will remain $6 a person.
â€śWe want it to remain affordable to have a fun night out watching a baseball game in Bristol,â€ť Lucian said.
