LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The event was held at Arni's where past players reunited.

Pizza was served and Leopards gear was given away.

The group then walked over to Loeb Stadium to watch the Aviators game.

Past players sat in a special section of the stadium to watch the game.

The Leopards were a professional minor league baseball team in the 90's.

Teammates also wanted to celebrate Loeb Stadium. The stadium will be torn down for renovation.

Lafayette native and former leopards player Jason Talman said this a great opportunity for everyone to come together.

"It feels awesome to be back," said Talman. "It's really cool just to see the people. See teammates, see Brad, see our manager and Bob. Some of the people, the fans, the kids, it's just cool seeing some of the people."

Talman played from '99 to '98.

During his time he broke the record for being the first perfect game in the independent minor league history.
