The Hartford Yard Goats introduced their mascots Chompers and Chew Chew last week.

Hartford is the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. The team had played in New Britain, Conn. for the last 32 years as the New Britain Red Sox, the Hardware City Rock Cats and the New Britain Rock Cats.

I’m not sure how they will go over with kids today, but I’m pretty sure Chompers and Chew Chew would have terrified me as a child.

Hartford opens their inaugural season as the Yard Goats on April 7th against the Richmond Flying Squirrels. You can already purchase a selection of merchandise from their online shop.
