SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Major demolition is beginning at Fair Grounds Field in Shreveport.

On Wednesday, Sept. 8, crews brought in large equipment to start the process. Over the past week, crews got rid of trash and debris from inside the stadium.

Before demolition was approved, Perault Nuisance Wildlife Control had the responsibility of removing the stadium’s bat infestation.
