The Mobile BayBears are a minor league baseball team based in Mobile, Alabama, United States. The team, which plays in the Southern League, 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.



The name of the team was announced in July 1996. The name was chosen from a name-the-team contest.[1] Mobile mayor Mike Dow announced the name at that year's Mobile Fourth of July fireworks display.[2] In September 1996, the BayBears signed an affiliation agreement with the San Diego Padres.[3]
