The Yard Goats had been playing intended home games at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, but the Connecticut Tigers who usually play there began their season this month.
On Monday, the Hartford Stadium Authority decided to pull its contract with DoNo LLC. and Centerplan Construction after the developers said they would need two more months to complete the stadium, which was originally supposed to be completed in May. Now, equipment is being moved out of the stadium in a process called “destabilization mode,” and construction is at a standstill.
