The New Britain Rock Cats are negotiating with Hartford officials to bring the minor league baseball team to the city in 2016.
City officials said Monday there is a proposal to build a stadium at Main and Trumbull streets — an area known as “12B” just north of downtown. The team would begin playing there in the 2016 season.
The Rock Cats’ current lease with the city of New Britain runs through the end of the 2015 season.
New Britain’s mayor, Erin E. Stewart, and its corporation counsel, Gennaro Bizzarro, did not immediately return calls seeking comment Monday. Through a spokeswoman, Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra declined comment.
