LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Aviators are enjoying their last go around at Loeb Stadium.

Lafayette hosted Danville for its last, first home game ever in the 79-year-old ball park.

As we previously reported the $17 million dollar new stadium will start construction at the end of this year's season.

The Aviators are still unsure where it will host home games next year.

Head Coach Brent McNeil and fans said they are stoked for the new stadium and love rooting on their team.

"There isn't a better summer entertainment value than Lafayette Aviators baseball," said Joe Wenig. "Between the bouncy house, the pizza, the food and the beer and you get to watch baseball. I'm old school I would just come for the baseball."
