Alabama A&M Sports Information


BIRMINGHAM – The Bulldogs and Alabama State have already met on the diamond this year and the next time the two intrastate rivals meet, it will be a Classic – with a capital “C”.

The third annual Magic City Diamond Classic will be Friday at Birmingham’s Regions Field – home of the minor league Birmingham Barons.While not as historic as football’s Magic City Classic, this game, nonetheless, carries importance to the SWAC Eastern Division standings and, of course, to the schools’ officials, student-athletes, alums and fans.

This is the third incarnation of the Classic, as well. The first was a three-game series played at historic Rickwood Field and was won by Alabama A&M.  Last year’s Classic was a single game at Rickwood Field and won by Alabama State.

This is the first year for the Classic to be held at Regions Field and it, too, will be a single game. Games two and three of the regular season series will be April 8-9 at Bulldog Field.
