The Hartford Yard Goats on Wednesday said individual tickets for home games at Dunkin' Donuts Park will go on sale Friday, Feb. 8.

The double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies said single-game tickets will be available in person only at 10 a.m. at the ballpark's Click It or Ticket box office. The first 50 fans to purchase tickets in person will receive a $25 Dunkin' gift card.

Team officials said tickets can be purchased over the phone or on the Yard Goats' website at noon.

The Yard Goats, which finished third in their division in 2018 at 65-72, will begin its third season in downtown Hartford on Thursday, April 11, vs. the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, the double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.

The squad finished 2018 ranked second in the Eastern League in average game attendance drawing over 6,000 fans per game. Dunkin' Donuts Park, named last year as the minor league division's best ballpark, recorded 47 sellouts and 408,942 attendees.

In the park's first two seasons, it has played to 88 sellouts and lured more than 800,000 fans.

Beginning this month, Dunkin' Donuts dropped "Donuts"from ads, packages, signage, at remodeled stores and on social media.

The Yard Goats have not yet made a decision on whether to rebrand its ballpark.
