MY TAKE ON THE PARK

Beehive Field from 3rd base

IF EVER THERE WAS A PLACE TO SHOW YOU JUST HOW FAR MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL HAS COME, BEEHIVE FIELD IS IT. BUILT IN 1982 TO BRING A DOUBLE A TEAM TO NEW BRITAIN AND CLOSED IN 1995 TO KEEP A DOUBLE A TEAM THERE. THIS WAS NOTHING LIKE THE $20 MILLION PLACES THAT ARE GOING UP TODAY. IT IS STILL STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO THE NEW PLACE, IT LOOKS MORE LIKE IT WAS BUILT IN 1930.
BEEHIVE FIELD WAS A CHARMING PLACE VERY SIMPLE IN DESIGN. YOU WALKED IN, MEN'S ROOM ON YOUR RIGHT, LADIES ROOM ON YOUR LEFT, CONCESSION STAND BETWEEN THEM, AND STANDS
ABOVE IT ALL, THE PLAYERS WERE PRETTY ACCESSIBLE HERE TOO.

BEEHIVE FIELD WAS THE SITE OF MY FIRST MINOR LEAGUE GAME SO I GUESS I AM VERY PARTIAL TO IT. AS UNCOMFORTABLE A PLACE AS IT WAS, I ALWAYS STOP BY TO THINK THAT MAYBE THIS WAS BETTER THAN THE NEW PLACE. THE NEW PLACE HAS A LOT OF CONCRETE AND GREEN BUCKET SEATS THAT THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT MUST HAVE GOTTEN A DEAL ON. HOWEVER, BEEHIVE HAD STEEL BLEACHERS,A FEW HUNDRED RED SEATS AND A WARMNESS THAT THE NEW PLACES ARE MISSING.
YOU CAN STILL GO TO BEEHIVE FIELD, NEW BRITAIN HIGH SCHOOL GAMES ARE STILL PLAYED HERE.
