You might find Date as a field name is a clash with a mysql reserved word.

try using

"PostDate" => "Date"

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new CalendarDateField(PostDate, 'Date'), 'Content');

the do a flush and see if it works.. remember to change the $Date to $PostDate in your template.

It looks all good to me. Anyways, try

new CalendarDateField('Date')

instead of

new CalendarDateField('Date', 'Date')

and populate the default using the following code:

public function populateDefaults(){
   $this->Date = date("Y-m-d H:i:s",time());
