New Britain Atlantic League team to be named this week

The independent Atlantic League’s New Britain franchise will gain its identity this week when team officials announce its name and put season tickets on sale on Thursday, November 5th.

The New Britain Stingers won the New Britain Herald’s “Name The Team” contest, beating out the New Britain Hornets, New Britain Hard Hitters, New Britain Hammer and New Britain Bees. The contest results will influence the final naming decision, but are not binding… it will only factor in about 20 percent, reports New Britain Herald writer Lisa Backus.
