The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, a Double-A Affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, are playing ball when it comes to organic field maintenance! The beloved New Hampshire team have called Northeast Delta Dental Stadium home since 2005, and this beautiful ballpark has become the Granite State’s premiere outdoor entertainment destination for affordable family fun. Readers of Parenting New Hampshire Magazine have voted the Fisher Cats "NH's Favorite Sporting Event for Families" for seven years running, and the team has been voted New Hampshire Magazine's "Best New Hampshire Sports Team" for each of the last nine years. The franchise was nominated for the John H. Johnson President's Award in 2018, which recognizes Minor League Baseball's most complete franchise. And to top it all off, the Fisher Cats have won three Eastern League Championships in their 15 seasons in Manchester, including a title in 2018!
Stonyfield is proud to partner with its hometown team, making the Fisher Cats’ home field the first field to be organically managed in all of professional baseball. “We’re on a mission to convert parks and playing fields all across the country to organic grounds management, but we couldn’t overlook our own backyard,” says Stonyfield co-founder and Chief Organic Optimist Gary Hirshberg. “Converting the home field of our hometown team was a natural fit and we’re thrilled to help give our Fisher Cats the organic ball field they deserve. We hope it inspires other teams to do the same, for the health of their players and fans.”
