The soon-to-be Hartford Yard Goats will unveil their new logo on Wednesday.
The minor league baseball team, known now as the New Britain Rock Cats, will adopt its new name and mascot upon moving to Hartford in 2016. The team will play at a brand-new stadium in the city’s Downtown North development.
The Yard Goats selected their name as part of an online contest. Although a "yard goat" is actually a locomotive, many expect the team's new mascot to depict the animal of the same name. Two live goats were present when the name was announced in March.
The new logo will go public on Wednesday. Team officials said they expect to make the reveal at 1 p.m. at the atrium of the XL Center in Hartford.
