Barons head home…

It was announced tonight that the Birmingham Barons will actually be moving to…. Birmingham.  I can’t wait for this move.  I’m not what you would call a rabid baseball fan, but I do enjoy going to games- and it’ll be nice to have them closer to home.  Hoover played hardball to keep the Barons, but a new move to build up the downtown area won out.  It will be interesting to see where Birmingham’s new endeavor takes it, but the city’ efforts to improve downtown have so far been a very positive effort, to me.  I can’t wait for the first pitch.

Update: Mayor Bell says he’s excited about the Barons coming back, but the deal isn’t 100% done.
