Alabama Professional Sports, League, College and High School Sports

Alabama has a number of minor league semi-professional teams including four minor league baseball teams, and one Arena Football League team. Alabama is the second-most populated state without a major professional sports franchise. (it is the most populated on the off chance that one views Virginia as the home of the NFL's Washington Redskins and NHL's Washington Capitals, which have their training facilities and operational home office in Northern Virginia)

The Hank Aaron Stadium baseball stadium in Mobile, Alabama, 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 (from 1974 to 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 twenty feet.
