Weekend Plans: Apr 30th 2011

This Saturday, April 30th, marks the beginning of the Coltsville Vintage Baseball League season. Saturday’s doubleheader begins at 10:30 at the Hendricksen Avenue side of Colt Park in Hartford. There is no cost for parking or admission – just stop by with your lawn chair to enjoy some olde time baseball and beautiful weather. The MDC also kicks off their season this Saturday. Yes, I’m talking about the ever popular Household Hazardous Waste Collection season!

Hartford at Play

Hartford’s Colt Park comes alive after the workday ends. Athletes of all ages congregate on the park’s expansive fields to participate in a wide variety of activities. On a recent Wednesday, the local kickball league dominated the action with 7 simultaneous games. But there was more than enough room for other groups to play baseball, fast-pitch softball, slow-pitch softball, basketball and cricket. Who says there’s nothing to do in Hartford?
