Music - Holdin' on to yesterday by Ambrosia
Shot in September of 2016 using digital.
Fair Grounds Field is now 30 years old. The last use was by the independent league Shreveport - Bossier Captains. That was back in 2011.
The stadium sits vacant, rotting away in the heat and humidity of northwest Louisiana. Maintenance is sparse on the old park. Grass is cut. It is power washed from time to time to get rid of the toxic bat droppings (bats are nesting in the stadium). No one knows what will happen to the park. Its a slower version of what happened to old Spar Stadium, just a few miles away.
Location -2109 Pershing Blvd. Shreveport, Louisiana Fairgrounds Field is on the Louisiana state fairgrounds - Bounded by I-20, US 80. Jewell Ave., Hearne Ave.
