Crews are working hard downtown with construction, but now there’s going to be one thing left off the build list: the right field roof. The grandstand roof would run about $305,000 and according to the Hartford Courant, that money needs to be used elsewhere. The decision is part of the developers need to cut down on $4 million to make up for cost overruns in the $56 million budget.
The Yard Goats owners agreed to pay $21,000 to keep automatic toilets in the stadium or toilets that flush themselves. The team will also pay $34,000 for steel beams on the side of the stadium for signs and sponsorship.
