Hartford Hits with Powerful Anthem

Hartford scores with a thoughtful anthem performance that touches all on the important elements of the day.

The Goats had it all cooking here for this Anthem Performance.

First they are playing by the new rules with a socially distanced and masked performance.

Then, they used two FRONT LINE workers to sing the duet anthem.

PLUS a military flyover right over home plate.

Great start to the season for the Goats. Great to see them back in action.
