Freight trains roll by the park - sometimes 2 or 3 per game.

The ballpark is an adaptive reuse of an old train depot

and the site was once a rather unpleasant Confederate Military Prison.

Nice review here.

Joe Davis Stadium, Huntsville

Probably the oldest stadium in the Southern League, built during the multi-purpose

era of ball parks (mid eighties) seats 11,000.

damn, guys, you've really stepped up on these themed photo threads. i expected no responses (but was hoping there would be, since i haven't got a lot of photos of the topics thus far introduced and like to see what i'm missing). nice work.

Wow, i'm highly impressed with Montgomery's urban Riverwalk Stadium. I was extremely dissapointed in my beloved Mobile when they chose to fill in delicate wetlands in west Mobile instead of building the stadium downtown. A more appropriate location for Hank Aaron stadium would have been the James M. Seals Jr. Park downtown.
