Building an Urban, Fan-Friendly Ballpark

Hartford Baseball Stadium

Hartford, Connecticut

Hartford, one of National Baseball League’s original cities when it was formed in 1876, has not had a pro baseball team since 1952.  That is set to change in April 2016 when the Hartford Yard Goats, a Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, relocate to their new stadium in Connecticut’s capital city.

 

The state-of-the-art ballpark is being constructed in the northern section of downtown Hartford between 1-84 and 1-91, and is being designed to create affordable family entertainment that minor league baseball teams are known for. In addition to hosting the Yard Goats’ 71 home games, the open-air facility will have year-round opportunities to host concerts, sporting events, and corporate- and community-oriented gatherings.

 

The yet-to-be-named ballpark is considered the epicenter of the $350-million Downtown North (DoNo) development, which will also include a supermarket, brewery, apartments, stores, restaurants, office space and parking.
