Birmingham Barons prepare to return home to new ballpark

The{} Birmingham Barons will get the first chance to see their new home Monday. That's when they'll return from spring training in Arizona.

Work is still underway on Regions Field. But the actual field is done and the first pitch will be thrown in just over a week on April 10 at 7:05 p.m..

The team has been away at spring training in Arizona during the construction. But the general manager says they're eager to see the new ballpark.

"The talk at spring training has been the new ballpark- all the amenities, not just for fans but for players, all the teams coming in. I know they're really excited," said Jonathan Nelson, Barons general manager.

Tickets are still available for Opening Day.
