BRIDGEPORT -

Reports are surfacing that the Bridgeport Bluefish have settled on a new location, with just four home games remaining in Bridgeport.

The Atlantic League retweeted a message from a local newspaper in High Point, North Carolina, saying the team will move there for the 2019 season, provided the stadium is finished.

As News 12 Connecticut reported, Bridgeport chose to part ways with the Bluefish and focus on a plan to turn the Ballpark at Harbor Yard into a music amphitheater.
