In 2012, the Bluefish became the first team in Atlantic League history to reach 1,000 victories. It was a huge milestone for a franchise that today, stands as one of only two remaining charter teams throughout the entire league. The 'Fish initially brought baseball back to Park City in 1998, and advanced to the league championship series in a losing effort. A year later, though, they returned with their first league title after defeating the Somerset Patriots.

The team's early success established a winning tradition–in fact, the Bluefish didn't suffer their first losing season until their eighth year of existence. Winning hasn't been the only tradition in Bridgeport, however. The Bluefish battle the Long Island Ducks every season for the Ferry Cup, trying to establish regional supremacy on the baseball diamond instead of by firing a barrage of used baseballs across the Long Island Sound.

Winners of back-to-back conference championships, the Yale men's hockey team earned NCAA tournament appearances during the past two seasons, and is off to one of its best ever starts this season that includes a No. 1 national ranking. Rattle the bleachers with feet twitching in excitement as coach Keith Allain leads a Bulldogs charge against the Holy Cross Crusaders on January 2. Alternately, marvel at the scoring prowess of senior forwards Broc Little and Chris Cahill as they take on the Colgate Crusaders in the season's penultimate game on February 25. Whichever game is attended, fans will leave the rink with their heads buzzing and dreams filled with fleets of obedient zambonis.

A Hartford community staple since it was sculpted around the 1930s, Goodwin Park Golf Course peppers the countryside with 27 holes of various challenges. The main 18-hole, 6,015 yard course weaves among trees and gentle hills, offering three sets of tees for different handicaps, while a shorter 9-hole executive layout lets golfers squeeze in a round before their magic driver turns back into a useless tent pole.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Length of 6,015 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 68.6 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 119 from the farthest tees

At Sportsplex, lines of gleaming strength and conditioning machines stand ready to help exercisers transform their bodies. When clients aren't lifting dumbbells and bars or swimming in a pool that uses the chlorine-free SaltPure system, they can work out with personal trainers or in small-group Group Jamz sessions, or play squash on the on-site courts.

Fitness Together isn't your usual gym. The locally owned franchise doesn't boast ultra-chic titles, avant-garde workout rooms, or elitist trainers. What it does do is help each exerciser achieve sustainable results via its goal-oriented philosophy and proprietary triple threat of resistance training, cardiovascular exercises, and nutritional knowledge. The Aspire 8 resistance program sculpts clients' physiques over the course of eight progressive phases through a one-year period dotted with individual goals. Cardio Together presents personalized programs designed and tracked by a certified trainer, and Nutrition Together crafts a plan for healthy living that doesn't involve water imported from Canada’s fountain of youth and includes the help of one-on-one meetings with a nutritionist.

Laser Planet's sprawling facility hosts a trio of attractions: laser tag, black-light mini golf, and an arcade. Competitors don vests and equip their laser-emitting weapons before heading into the multi-level laser-tag arena, where they'll be met with techno music, fog, and strobe lights, as they navigate corridors and attempt to tag the other team in a game of PowerPoint de la muerte. Or, they can head to the mini-golf arena, where black lights illuminate bright colors, aliens, and astronauts positioned around the 10-hole course. Elsewhere, a video arcade presents digital challenges, as players grab joysticks and mash buttons gleefully. Additionally, Laser Planet also offers a host of parties and events, ranging from all-night lock-ins, to corporate team building, to birthdays.
