Mobile Bay Bears AA for Arizona Diamondbacks

Got here successfully today, June 4, after failing my last time through the area and finding the gates all locked. 

I had called ahead, and was assured they would take care of me and the did-  Just a site visit, the team was out of town. 

The Mobile BayBears are a minor league baseball team based in Mobile, Alabama, United States. The team, which plays in the Southern League (of which they are the back-to-back defending champions), is the Double-A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks major league club. The BayBears play in Hank Aaron Stadium, named after baseball's former all-time home run king and Mobile native Hank Aaron. Opened in 1997, the park seats 6,000 spectators.
The BayBears franchise was located in Wilmington, North Carolina from 1995 to 1996 under the name of the Port City Roosters. From 1993 to 1994, they were the Nashville Xpress located in Nashville, Tennessee, after relocating from Charlotte, North Carolina where they were the first incarnation of the Charlotte Knights.
From 1997 to 2006, the BayBears were the Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.
