Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium

It's fun when the Montgomery Biscuits play baseball at Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium in Alabama. The 7,000-seat ballpark hosts the Biscuits, the Class AA affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. The Biscuits earned their moniker from a “name the team” contest, with ownership intrigued at the marketing possibilities, including “Hey, Butter, Butter” and the team's souvenir store called Biscuit Basket. During games, hot biscuits are shot from an air cannon into the stands. The comfortable stadium has 20 luxury suites and a notched-in curve in right field where the American flag flies.
