BERT E. LOEB STADIUM
part of the Columbian Park complex in Lafayette has served continuously as the home of the Colt World Series since 1969
The stadium has a seating capacity of approximately 3,500 with plenty of standing room. A natural infield is surrounded by 150 lights on eight high towers surrounding the field for excellent night playing.
Dedicated in 1940, Loeb Stadium has hosted numerous baseball games and other events over the years. Bert and June Loeb donated $ 50,000 to construct the 3,500 seat stadium in honor of Solomon Loeb.
Originally called the Columbian Park Recreational Center, it was officially renamed as Loeb Stadium in 1971. Today Loeb Stadium serves as the home field for Lafayette Jefferson High School. It also hosts IHSAA tournaments, American Legion baseball and the Colt World Series.
