Lafayette's baseball program practices and plays all of its games at Hilton Rahn '51 Field at Kamine Stadium at the Metzgar Athletic Campus in Forks Township, Pa. Renovations over the past decade have drastically improved the venue and turned it into one of the top baseball facilities in the Patriot League.

The infield underwent a complete renovation in the fall of 2007. The project included grading the subsurface of the infield, installing an irrigation system and placement of new sod and infield mix. The pitcher's mound and home plate were also rebuilt.

Prior to the 2003 season, the stadium underwent significant changes. A 500-seat grandstand, with chair back seating, was added behind home plate. A press box, equipped with a permanently installed public address system and phone lines for television, radio and newspaper use and uploading of live stats, sits atop the new grandstand. A new backstop with netting was attached to the bleacher seating. The existing team dugouts were extended by 20 feet and were completely refurbished, adding on-field storage.

A 15-foot crushed stone warning track lines the outfield fence and helps define the dimensions - 332 down the left field line, 403 to straightaway center and 335 down the right field line. The stadium also features permanent batting cages and four regulation bullpens, including a home bullpen shelter.
