HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Hartford Yard Goats won't be the first to take the field at Dunkin' Donuts Park when the Double-A team makes it long-awaited debut at the new stadium.

Police say four men were arrested and charged with criminal trespassing after they were caught playing baseball in the yet-to-be-completed Connecticut ballpark at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday May 21st.

An officer assigned to a security detail at the stadium discovered the men after hearing yelling and cheering coming from the field. When the officer went to investigate the commotion, he found a man on the pitcher's mound, another in the batter's box and two in the outfield.

Police say one of the men who was charged works for Centerplan Construction, a company involved in building the ballpark. The others were his friends.

Centerplan officials declined to comment.
