It may not feel like it right now, but summer's really here. The Upper Valley Nighthawks will hold their first practice on Wednesday, June 6. The New England Collegiate Baseball League team makes its home at the Maxfield Sports Complex in Hartford -- where practice will run from about 4 pm to 6 pm.
If you don't want to travel, practices are all we get for a few days. The Nighthawks begin the season with three road games. Their home opener is Saturday, June 9, against the Winnepesaukee Muskrats. The opener will feature a Magnet Schedule Giveaway sponsored by Mascoma Savings Bank. The following night, (Sunday, June 10th) will be Princess & Pirate Night. Per the Nighthawks' press release: "Kids and adults are encouraged to channel their inner Cinderella or Blackbeard and join us for a night of fun. There will be Disney princesses on hand for pictures, and a treasure hunt." Arrrr!
