Lafayette Park

Lafayette Park is the home of the Campus Commandos. It played host to the first ever Wiffle in Southeast Michigan league games on April 29, 2011, where the Commandos beat the Jason Mattseals in two games. Naturally, Lafayette also holds the honor of seeing many "firsts," such as strike-out, hit, home-run, and RBI.

The field has one of the most picturesque backdrops in the league with Greektown, the Renaissance Center, and the rest of the Detroit skyline behind the right-field line. Being located in a city park has also led to the other most notable thing about Lafayette, as well as its nickname - The Jungle. The grass is cut only a couple times a month, and therefore can get quite long: slowing down play to keep short hits foul, or have routine ground outs stop short for infield singles. It provides easily one of the most noticeable home-field advantages in the league.
