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.

  • I have been to a lot of minor league ballparks but this one ranks near the bottom with Hickory, NC. The stadium is dated and laid out about as weird as I've ever saw. I felt sorry for the employees that worked here because they seemed elated that anyone showed up for the game. They were very nice and helpful but that was the only positive here. The team store was bare bones and there wasn't much in the whole stadium to enhance the quality of the game day experience. I came to see the opposing team and what few fans of the Bay Bears that actually showed up for a weekend game were pretty harsh on their own team's performance. This would be a good candidate for relocating this team to another city that might show up for a game. Pitiful...
  • Great place to catch a game. Everyone is professional and courteous. Prices are great and the place is kept clean. Definitely one of Mobile's hidden gems!
  • A very nice park and a great game experience but the crowd was too small.
  • Watching the Bay Bears play is a great way to spend an evening.
  • Great atmosphere for a AA ball game.
