The Hartford Yard Goats may be a couple years removed from New Britain, but most members of the New Britain City Journal Facebook group say they will go see the New Britain Bees, but not the Hartford Yard Goats this year.

The City Journal’s Facebook Question of the Month was “Have you gone to a Bees game this year or are you planning to? What about the Yard Goats? Will you go watch them”?

The following were some of the answers to those questions.
