Springfield, MA

From BR Bullpen

Springfield is located in western Massachusetts, on the Connecticut River, 50 miles west of Worcester, MA. It was the site of the U.S. National Armory, from the 1770s to the 1960s, and was the source of the famous Springfield Rifles used by the U.S. Army during much of that period. It is also known as the site of the first-ever basketball game, played at Springfield College in 1891; as a result, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is located here.
