HARTFORD (AP) - The officials given the task of completing Hartfordâ€™s much-delayed minor league baseball stadium say the facility should be completed in time for the teamâ€™s home opener in April.
Patrick Nails, a senior vice president with Arch Insurance, told the Hartford Stadium Authority on Tuesday that barring severe weather or â€śan act of Godâ€ť he expected the Hartford Yard Goats to play in the 6,000-seat Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Stadium on April 13.
The parkâ€™s original contractor was fired in June following construction delays that forced the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies to play the entire 2016 season on the road.
The Courant (http://cour.at/2i0gbvp ) reports that Tuesdayâ€™s meeting was the authorityâ€™s first regular meeting since May.
Mayor Luke Bronin said he was impressed by the new contractorâ€™s professionalism and truthfulness.
