The Huntsville Stars, a Double A affiliate of Milwaukee, play in Joe W. Davis Stadium, seating 10,200. Mr. Davis was the mayor of Huntsville when the stadium opened in 1985. It would appear that little has been done to improve the stadium since it was built. There are newer seats, without arm rests in the general admission area. The other seating areas have crumbling seats or no seats at all. The Stars were playing the Birmingham Barons. We witnessed another come from behind victory by the Stars in the bottom of the 9th inning. The game was tied at 6 for several innings after the Stars blew a good lead. Then in the 9th inning they put together 3 hits and won 7-6. The box score was Barons R-6, H-8, E-3 and Stars R-7, H-15, E-1. The field lines are RF-330', CF-405', and LF-345'. This is the first time we have seen a bat girl who worked with the Stars team. The mascot is Homer the Polecat. The Baron's player is pitcher Neal Cotts, who is the nephew of Linda from the Protocol office at MacDill AFB. The attendance was 1,050, though I would not guess this was actual attendance. They had an Easter egg hunt on the field after the game using plastic eggs with candy and special prizes inserted inside them. The upper part of the scoreboard was broken today.
