#14 of 25 in Fun & Games in Alabama
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.

    Mediocre stadium. Expected more. Kinda rundown. Staff was great and ticket prices were good. Fans were really into it. So overall good experience.  more »

    The baseball team in town who dispute the minor leagues of the United States. For being one of the few sports attractions, the games attract good audiences, but the stadium is in need of urgent reform and modernization.

    Had a GREAT time! Enjoyed the game and the friendly people. I'll go again. The fireworks were awesome. Loved it!

    The ballfield is nice enough but I believe the "feel" for baseball is lacking in the community. The crowd was very small but I enjoyed my field level seat.

    Nice stadium but spent most of game standing in line waiting for a hot dog. Three concession areas, all with over 100 people in line for each. Only one cash register open at each and serving one person at a time. Eat before you come, don't plan on eating a dog and watching a game.

    Baseball games are great here! Love the bay bears! The stadium has a strange layout, but perfect for a good time.
