31 Ballparks Of May: #16 Kokomo Municipal Stadium

Kokomo Municipal Stadium Sunset

Kokomo Municipal Stadium At Sunset

I made this photo way too long ago now. In 2015 I was the team photographer for the first season of the Kokomo Jackrabbits. The next year I was back in Kokomo for the all star game that was played there. During the home run derby there was an amazing sunset. At the time I would never have guessed that it would be the last time that I was at the park. This is a really cool stadium that I am sure has gotten much better since 2016. I need to get out there when there is baseball again and check it out.

Developing A Fan Base

I was only a part of the Jackrabbits for one season. What I saw in that season though was pretty impressive. They had a hardcore group of fans right off the bat. I hope that they fanbase has grown since then. It would be great to see a finished and packed stadium during my next visit.

A Familiar Plan

At one point the same owners were part of the Kokomo Jackrabbits and the Lafayette Aviators. It is only fitting that the new stadium for the Aviators will have some inspiration from this stadium in Kokomo. It is a great little stadium for the local teams to play in, and I can’t wait to see the finished park in Lafayette.
