Lafayette's softball program practices and plays all of its games at the Lafayette Softball Field at the Metzgar Fields Athletic Complex in Forks Township, Pa. Renovations over the past decade have turned the venue into one of the top softball facilities in the Patriot League.

The grandstand features chairback and bleacher seating overlooking the field. Atop the grandstand is a press box used for live video streaming and in-game statistics. A state-of-the-art scoreboard looks over the fence in left centerfield. The home dugout and warm-up area are situated on the first-base line. The outfield fence sits at 200 down the lines, 205 in the gaps and 210 to straightway centerfield.

While the softball field does have outdoor batting cages, the bulk of the hitting work is done in Morel Field House located just out of sight of rightfield between the softball and baseball complexes. The facility is an 80-ft. x 96-ft. building (7,680 sq. ft.) that features four batting tunnels, an Astroturf surface, four indoor pitching circles, four hitting mats and three divider nets. There is also a 21-ft. x 80-ft. area used for storage, warm-up and video analysis.

Lafayette Athletics, as a partner in the mission of the College, provides an incredibly effective learning experience for student-athletes through competitive NCAA Division I athletics. Lafayette sponsors 23 varsity sports with more than 600 student-athletes.
