Community support in New Britain continues

WINDSOR, CT., April 5, 2016 - Vantis Life Insurance is sweet on the Bees.

The Windsor-based company has been a long-time sponsor of the former New Britain Rock Cats. With that team moving to Hartford as the Yard Goats, Vantis will continue to help support the new local professional baseball team, the New Britain Bees.

As part of a three-year agreement, Vantis will provide advertising support for the Bees both on the team's web site and at the ball park. The Bees, part of the Atlantic League, will begin its inaugural season of play at New Britain Stadium on April 21 against the York Revolution.

"Corporate support is vital to a team's success," said Bees General Manager Patrick Day. "We're pleased that Vantis is a charter sponsor of Bees baseball and part of a core group of corporations in the area helping to keep affordable, family entertainment alive and well in the central Connecticut region. Vantis was one of the first to reach out and express interest in the Bees and we couldn't be more excited to partner with the entire team at Vantis."

"The management of the Atlantic League and the group managing the New Britain franchise are professional, community-focused professionals," said Craig Simms, Vantis Senior Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer. "There has been considerable buzz in the community about this new team and we are pleased to join with New Britain in wishing the Bees a honey of an inaugural season."

"Helping to support the community has been a Vantis focus since we were founded nearly 75 years ago - whether that support involves matching individuals with needed financial protection or providing support for a project that improves the life of an entire community," Simms added.
