History

The franchise's timeline can be traced back to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, which was the home of the Red Sox' double-A affiliate for several years in the 1960s and from 1970 to 1972. When the Pawtucket Red Sox became a triple-A team in 1973, the Sox moved their double-A franchise to Bristol, Connecticut. Known as the Bristol Red Sox, the team played at Muzzy Field for ten seasons from 1973 to 1982. Starting with the 1983 season, owner Joe Buzas moved the team some 10 miles east to New Britain. Now known as the New Britain Red Sox, the team played its home games at Beehive Field, which is still standing next to the current stadium. Pawtucket is a city in Providence County, Rhode Island, United States. ... 1970 (MCMLXX) was a common year starting on Thursday. ... 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ... In baseball, the Pawtucket Red Sox (known colloquially as the PawSox) are the AAA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox and belong to the International League. ... 1973 (MCMLXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday. ...

As Beehive Field became outdated and new facilities began to pop up in other cities around the league, Buzas was faced with the choice of staying in New Britain and building a new stadium, versus moving the franchise again. The Red Sox front office supported the idea of moving to Springfield, Massachusetts, because it was closer to their fan base, but ultimately in August 1994, Buzas decided to stay. The Red Sox promptly pulled their affiliation and moved it, at the time, to Trenton, New Jersey (ironically, further away from the fan base). For the 1995 season, Buzas signed a new development agreement with the Minnesota Twins, and this affiliation has continued ever since. During the 1995 season (their only season in Beehive Field), the team was known as the Hardware City Rock Cats, a reference to New Britain's nickname "The Hardware City". Since 1996 when they moved into the current stadium, the team has been the New Britain Rock Cats. Stanley Works continues to be a significant sponsor of the team and ballpark.

During 2003 and 2004, the team was involved in several lawsuits over its Friday night fireworks displays. A group of residents living near the stadium claimed the noise was disruptive, and the ash and debris damaged their cars and homes. In May 2005, Judge Marshall Berger allowed the shows to continue after attending one himself, but ruled that their frequency should be scaled back.[1] The team is currently limited to only one show a month (generally held on the first Friday home game), and has added laser-light shows and other "quiet" promotions to replace the missing fireworks. 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

For the 1995 season, the New Britain team signed a new development agreement with the Minnesota Twins, and this affiliation has continued ever since.
