The New Britain Stingers(American Legion Baseball Division) is the elite baseball program for young men between the ages of 15 thru 19. Our program is fed by the great work of those associated with New Britain High School, E.C. Goodwin Technical School, TD BankNorth and the Mangan League.

Players are selected from various outlets such as public tryouts and coach recommendations from the various baseball programs throughout the city. All New Britain players must reside in the city of New Britain.

The level of competition of American Legion Baseball is compared to that of college baseball. Most importantly it has also been known to be a proving ground for future professional baseball players. Therefore our practices and games are held with the utmost seriousness and professionalism.

All of our home games are played at Beehive Field. Therefore we invited everyone out to the ballpark for a fun and exciting time.
