HARTFORD – The Greater Hartford Pro-Am summer basketball league, one of Hartford’s signature summer sporting events, is leaving the city after 16 years.

Pro-Am co-founder and CEO Peter Higgins, citing concerns over rising costs and other facility complications in Hartford, said Tuesday that the annual six-week event will be held this year at Crosby High School in Waterbury.

That means relocation about 25 miles west on I-84 for a cherished summer event.
