HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A report issued earlier this month detailed a number of construction problems with Hartford's new baseball stadium.

An architecture team from Pendulum that consisted of architects, electrical engineers and plumbers began looking into Dunkin' Donuts park on June 6.

That was the date it said the construction progress had ended on the $71 million stadium.

The team found rust, cracks, duct work issues and drains that weren't hooked up properly.

One particular crack was in the dugout where it met a wall.

There was also waterproofing issues in a section of the ceiling, which caused stains and buckling.

Pendulum also cataloged a number of unfinished items like walls, showers and underground plumbing.

Over the summer, Hartford fired the developers of the park, Centerplan and DoNo, LLC, for failing to meet completion deadlines.

The Hartford Yard Goats minor league baseball team was forced to play its entire inaugural season on the road.

Arch Insurance recently agreed to take over and pay for the stadium project. It guaranteed Yard Goats baseball in Hartford in 2017.

It also said Centerplan could be called back to complete the project, but the decision isn't just up to Arch.

Opening day has been set for April 2017.
