The Bristol Blues are a summer collegiate baseball team based in Bristol, Connecticut. It is a member of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL), a wood-bat league with a 56-game regular season that has six franchises in Massachusetts and two each in New Hampshire and Connecticut. The team's home games are played at Muzzy Field in Bristol.[1]

Ownership

The Bristol franchise was founded for the 2015 season by Elliot Scheiner, real estate developer David Lindland, and entrepreneur Steve Lindland.

History

In the team's first season it won the FCBL's West Division. In the playoffs it won its quarterfinal and semifinal games, advancing to the best-of-three league championship series against the defending champion Worcester Bravehearts. The teams split the first two games and were tied after nine innings in the third, at Muzzy Field, but the Bravehearts scored two runs in the top of the tenth to repeat as champions.[2]

Since 2015, the Blues have held a Hartford Whalers Appreciation Night, in which they honor the state's only major league franchise, the Hartford Whalers.[3]
