Baseball season arrives again at Hadlock FieldAfter starting the season with seven games on the road, the Sea Dogs head to Maine for an 11-game April homestand.... The Yard Goats came into existence when Josh Solomon, the New Britain Rock Cats’ owner, moved his team 12 miles north to Connecticut’s capital city.Portland will see a lot of the Yard Goats in April. The team’s new stadium won’t be ready until next month, which means the Yard Goats’ home games turned into away games. Four games scheduled for next week in Hartford will now be at Hadlock.That makes the Sea Dogs’ opening homestand a long one – from Thursday to Sunday, April 24 (with a day off on the 21st and a doubleheader the 23rd). That’s 11 home games – eight against Hartford and three against the Trenton Thunder sandwiched in between.http://www.pressherald.com/2016/04/14/b ... ock-field/Portland Press Herald - allows 10 free reads per month for non-subscribers.
