HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Officials say Hartford’s minor league baseball team won’t be playing its first home game at the new $65 million Dunkin’ Donuts Park until at least mid-summer.

After developers missed a May 17 deadline for “substantial completion” of the downtown ballpark, Stadium Authority Chair I. Charles Matthews says completion time for the Hartford Yard Goats’ new home has been pushed back until late June or early July.

Project manager Jason Rudnik says the delay was caused in part by changes to already completed work.

Team owner Josh Solomon says he’s unhappy with the stadium’s progress and is losing money every day. Initial plans called for the Yard Goats to play their first game in Dunkin’ Donuts Park on May 31.

Matthews says construction at the stadium is 95 percent finished.
