Mobile BayBears to Feature Alabama Gulf Seafood All Season Long

Who needs peanuts and Cracker Jack when you’ve got fresh, delicious Gulf Seafood right in your backyard?

Baseball and seafood go hand-in-hand here on the Gulf Coast, and now the Mobile BayBears are taking it to the next level with their latest round of promotions for Alabama Gulf Seafood.

Once a month throughout the season, Alabama Gulf Seafood will sponsor an Eat Alabama Seafood Show-Off at Hank Aaron Stadium, which will give local seafood restaurants the opportunity to “show off” their tastiest dishes for big ballpark crowds.

Each month’s Show-Off will allow ticket holders to sample each restaurant’s prepared dish and vote for their favorites. The winning restaurant will receive an Alabama Gulf Seafood prize pack.

While the featured restaurants will be different every event, the theme will change on a monthly basis as well.

The kick-off event on April 10 will feature Gulf seafood gumbo, and participating restaurants will include Wintzell’s Oyster House and Kitchen on George.

The full list of theme nights will include:

  • April 10 – Gumbo
  • May 8 – TBD
  • June 12 – Shrimp
  • July 17 – Oysters
  • August 21 – Best of Seafood

The Eat Alabama Seafood Show-Off series is part of an ongoing partnership between Alabama Gulf Seafood and the Mobile BayBears. Other promotions this season will include television commercials, digital marquee displays, in-stadium announcements, a prominent spot in the team’s Buy Fresh – Buy Local campaign, and a chance to win coupons to great local restaurants like the Original Oyster House, the Hungry Owl, and the Flora-Bama Yacht Club.

Additionally, one of last year’s biggest crowd-pleasing contests, the Eat Alabama Seafood Race, will return this year to Hank Aaron Stadium. At every home game, fans will cheer on our Fish, Shrimp and Crab as they square off between innings in a feat of speed to determine which section will receive great offers from local seafood restaurants.

Baseball and seafood both have a long, proud heritage here in Alabama, and we’re proud to be partnered with Coastal Alabama’s home team. Stop by all season long to enjoy America’s pastime alongside the Gulf Coast’s finest, freshest seafood.
