The view from home plate at Beehive Field. The field was in use  for pro ball from 1983 until a new park was built next door in 1996, then hosted sporadic college games. It is currently used for local high school games.


The view from down the third base line at Beehive Field. New Britain Stadium, which replaced Beehive in 1996 is visible beyond the right field corner.



The view from down the first base line at Beehive Field. The pressbox is located down the third base line, instead of directly behind home plate.



The light stands at Beehive Field come up straight through the bleachers, cutting off rows of bleachers and blocking the view of some fans.
