LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Upgrades may be coming to Loeb Stadium in Lafayette. Discussions are still in the early stages, but the popular baseball stadium could be getting a whole new look.
The stadium is home to the Colt World Series and Lafayette Jefferson High School baseball.
The options being weighed include completely rebuilding the stadium.
Roswarski says there were some structural issues with the stadium 10 years ago when he first took office.
He says the city did some work that would last about 10 years, so now it's time to look at the stadium again.
He says a committee was put together about a year ago to work with KJG Architecture.
KJG has given the city a feasibility study of what's possible.
"In the feasibility study, there's all kinds of options, from tearing it down and building new, to a significant remodel that would be almost like new but not as expensive," Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski (D) said.
Roswarski says the next step will be getting the groups that use Loeb Stadium together and have discussions with them – groups such as Jeff High School and Legion Baseball. He says any actual construction is still 4-5 years away.
Roswarski says to re-do the stadium, the city is looking at millions of dollars in costs, so it's important to look at all the options available.
