Hank Aaron Stadium, Mobile

4.1
Hank Aaron Stadium is a baseball park in Mobile, Alabama. It hosts the Mobile BayBears, a minor-league professional team in the Southern League. The stadium opened in 1997 and has a capacity of 6,000. The ballpark was named after Major League Baseball's home run king (1974-2007) and Mobile native Hank Aaron. It also features a commemorative plaque outside the stadium to honor each Mobilian enshrined at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Hank Aaron Stadium is unique in that the luxury suites are at field level. Thus, infield seating for the general public is elevated from the field by approximately 20 feet.HistoryIn November 1995, Mobile's city council voted to allocate $4 million to a new ballpark in Mobile and name it Hank Aaron Stadium. The city committed to pay for half the cost of construction and match the contribution of new franchise owner Eric Margenau. Architectural plans for the ballpark were unveiled in May 1996. Mobile city council member Vivian Davis Figures had suggested that the new ballpark be named after Aaron. The ballpark opened on April 17, 1997. Aaron's number 44 was retired by the BayBears and he threw out the first pitch with his parents, siblings, and extended family in attendance.

  • We were there for their fan appreciation day. They provided free hot dogs, soda and popcorn. If that wasn't enough they let everyone on the field and even provided gloves for adults and kids and balls so you can play catch. It was a week done event that showed that they care about fans. This team has decided to leave for various reasons but I'm personally glad they are here for two more years. They provide a low-cost entertainment experience for families and...it's baseball. If you go on the right day you could get out of your house, be entertained for three hours and feed a family of four for less than $30 (less on dollar concession night!). I'm not aware of anything remotely cheaper. If you are let me know.
  • Went for the Christmas light show. It was really really well put together. I had drove by several times before i got the chance to enjoy the event. Seeing it from the outside does not do this show justice. It's great! The ride is longer than i thought it would be. The music is not just traditional Christmas music, but also new music too. I really enjoyed this!
  • Went and saw the Christmas lights and I must say, they're awesome! The work the people put forth to make that show happen is unbelievably skilled. Most definitely worth the 6 dollars!
  • If you ever out towards the stadium and looking for something to do stop in and watch a game you'll really enjoy it very exciting
  • Christmas lights were amazing. It was 6 dollars a person which was kind of high. Thought you would pay just by car load. Other than that the lights were amazing and we will def see them again next year
