Dean Basso, 6, raises his hands in hopes of catching a T-shirt being thrown to the crowd at the New Britain Rock Cats season opener against the Richmond Flying Squirrels at New Britain Stadium Thursday night. His dad, Larry Basso, watches. The Bassos are from Torrington and come to games often. Although Dean didn't get a T-shirt, he later caught a ball thrown to him by a player between the seventh and eighth innings.
