HARTFORD -- Will Dunkin' Donuts Park, the future home of the Hartford Yard Goats, be ready for their home opener?
In a status hearing Tuesday afternoon, Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin grilled the developer of the stadium about their promised May 17 completion date. The developer insisted the stadium will be completed by May 17 and ready for the city per the terms of the contract. The first home game had been set for May 31.
But a representative for the team's owners said he has grave concerns about elevators, food service, stairs, and 50 non-compliant issues.
Back in January, about a week after it was announced that Dunkin’ Donuts Park would not open by the originally-planned April 7 date, it was announced that the new Hartford Yard Goats would start the 2016 season on the road.
In April, the Yard Goats won their first ever game on the road.
