We visit Regions Park, the home of the Birmingham Barons. Page 2: Cruising the Ballpark.
CRUISING THE BALLPARK
As noted, the ballpark was built when Birmingham had allusions of securing a Triple-A team, so it's big. It seats over 10,000, but a crowd of over 13,000 was accommodated for the recent SEC Baseball Tournament championship game.
All of the seating is in the grandstand, virtually all of it in the seating bowl: 3,202 box seats, 7,598 general-admission seats backed metal bleacher. A walkway intersects the two different kinds of seating.
Really, there's not a lot to Regions Park. The second level includes two press boxes, an open one for baseball and one closed one for high-school football, as well as 12 suites and two party areas. A party deck down the right-field line was crammed during our visit, while a picnic pavilion sits beyond the right-field corner. The left-field corner features a kids' play area.
A large videoboard is located in right field, while a huge speaker system in installed beyond batters’ eye in center field. And that's about it for amenities or flair.
