According to a report from FanRag Sports, the FBI, yes the FBI, has launched an investigation into the mess surrounding the construction, or at times lack thereof, of Dunkin’ Donuts Park, the theoretical home of the Colorado Rockies Double-A affiliate, the Hartford Yardgoats.
According to the report, the city of Hartford contacted the FBI over concerns that the roughly 71 million dollars in tax payer money that has been gathered to pay for it hasn’t gone to waste. The report also sites, “concerns based on allegations that certain vendors and subcontractors that should have been paid were not paid, and that the amount was quite large.”
It should be noted that there is an error in that story, saying that the project has not yet begun when it has. Also, we cannot confirm with our own sources the validity of this story, though we don’t have many sources at the FBI.
The Yardgoats are set to play their first real home game on April 13. Stay tuned to BSN Denver for more as this develops.
