PRESS RELEASE – The New Britain Rock Cats Baseball Club, the Double-A Eastern League Affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, officially introduced a new ownership group as the team begins its 30th consecutive season of play in New Britain. New Britain Double Play, LLC, a group led by real estate investor Josh Solomon and his siblings, Jim Solomon and Jennifer Goorno, assumes the day-to-day operations.
“We are proud and excited to begin the latest era of New Britain baseball,” said Solomon. “As we prepare for our 30th season, we will strive to improve upon the high standards of entertainment, affordability, and community involvement that our fans have come to expect over the past three decades. We look forward to getting to know our fans as we continue the longstanding tradition of excellence for New Britain baseball.”
The purchase of the Rock Cats marks a significant milestone for the Solomons, who have deep New England roots and a deeper lifelong passion for baseball. Josh Solomon is currently the president of The DSF Group, an award winning real estate investment and development firm with offices in Boston and Washington DC, which he co-founded. The firm focuses on the markets within the northeast corridor from Boston to Washington, D.C.
Under Solomon’s new leadership, the Rock Cats will be led by President and General Manager John Willi, a long-time Rock Cats executive who recently introduced a new leadership team.
The Rock Cats will begin their 30th consecutive season in New Britain on Thursday, April 5 at 6:05 PM against the Richmond Flying Squirrels (San Francisco – NL).
