The previous Hartford mayor stole a minor league baseball team from nearby New Britain.
(Not nice.) He promised to build a new stadium on an accelerated schedule, on a small plot with no parking in a marginal part of the downtown for $70 million and have it ready for this season.
Didn't happen. The city kept meddling with the plans, the contractor was kicked off the job,
the bonding company took its sweet time deciding if it was on the hook, everyone is suing everyone. The place leaks, work is substandard, the team had to play the whole season away from Hartford.
Welcome to Hartford, Dunkin Donuts Park.
"Please keep off the field." Not a problem . . .
