HARTFORD - The city of Hartford is being “handcuffed” by construction plans to build a new baseball stadium. What is the solution? Stan continues his conversation about the future of a still-unfinished baseball stadium in Hartford with Hartford Courant sportswriter Jeff Jacobs and Courant business reporter Ken Gosselin.
Mayor Luke Bronin, the owner of the Hartford Yard Goats and the developers of Dunkin Donuts Park are meeting Wednesday to talk about how to move forward with the remaining construction of the stadium, after the developers missed the deadline for ‘substantial completion’ by May 17. The plan was for the team to have its home opener at the ballpark on May 31. Now, baseball won’t be played there until July, according to I. Charles Mathews, the Stadium Authority Chairman.
