While much of Connecticut high school’s baseball Opening Day was washed out on Saturday, April 2, the Norwalk Bears’ new artificial turf field came up clutch. First pitch was scheduled for 1 p.m. from the new ball park at Nathan Hale Middle School in Norwalk. The rain did, however, keep the HAN Network inside. We broadcast the game from the a second-floor classroom of the school.
This is the HAN Network’s first spring sports broadcast of the season. We have another 17 games on the schedule in April — including boys and girls lacrosse, softball, volleyball and tennis. You can check out the whole schedule here.
