HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Hartford Stadium Authority is demanding answers from the developers of the city’s new $56 million minor league baseball park.

The Hartford Courant reports the authority sent a letter last Thursday to Centerplan Cos. and DoNo Hartford LLC asking to explain $10 million in cost overruns and why Dunkin’ Donuts Park might not be ready for the Hartford Yard Goats’ first game on April 7.

The letter requires the developers to provide written assurance of “the anticipated date of substantial completion” along with a detailed finance plan by Dec. 23.

Centerplan chief executive Robert Landino disputed the $10 million figure and says his team intends to complete the stadium on time.

Yard Goats owner Josh Solomon says he’s “deeply concerned” that the park won’t be ready by opening day.
