A Tuesday groundbreaking ceremony for a minor league baseball stadium in Hartford’s Downtown North section also marked the beginning of the end of the moniker for the team that will play there.

The owners of the New Britain Rock Cats, which has been the team’s name since 1997, are holding a contest to choose a new name.

The person who submits the winning name will get two lifetime season tickets, team gear, and their photo in the game program.

Four runners up will get a pair of season tickets for the team’s inaugural season in Hartford.

The entry deadline is Feb. 27. The team will list five finalist names on March 11.
