I attended my first Montgomery Biscuits (AA Tampa Bay Rays affiliate) game last Monday night. The home team was taking on the Mobile (AL) BayBears (AA affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks). Montgomery’s Riverwalk Stadium is a great new facility, located in the city’s historic downtown.
Our evening began a short block away near this old water tower
We enjoyed dinner at world famous Dreamland BBQ
Here’s a look at “The Alley” – cool space!
Grabbed a pint of microbrew (Hopitoulas IPA from NOLA)
Dinner was BBQ bird, sauce and Sunbeam Bread
Got a complimentary order of Nanner Puddin’ too!
The brick exterior gives the ballpark a classic look
The team’s apparel store is aptly called the “Biscuit Basket”
Team mascot, Monte Biscuit (complete with butter slab tongue!)
The ballpark was built on the site of the old railroad station
Love this exposed brick feature
Some great details remain from the old railyard
Me and the boys hangin’ out with “Big Mo”

Listen to team theme songs here:
Some more of the ballpark’s retro features
Real trains still run just beyond the left field wall
Of course, they serve biscuits at Biscuits’ home games!
