The Bristol Collegiate Baseball Club of the NECBL will be moving to Mystic Connecticut for the 2011 season after the league approved the move today. Mystic will play their home games at Fitch High School in Groton Connecticut. The team will pay for upgrades to the field which includes lights, fencing, seating and new dugouts. This is now the second franchise to move this off-season in the NECBL as the Lowell All-Americans relocated to Old Orchard Beach last month. The move by Bristol will be the 20th team to either move or fold the operations since the league started play in the summer of 1993.
