Team History[edit]

The Mobile BayBears began play in the Southern League in 1997 (when the Port City Roosters moved to Mobile, AL). They became an Arizona Diamondbacks affiliate following the 2006 season after previously having been a farm team of the San Diego Padres for their entire existence. In 2017, they switched affiliations to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Their home ballpark is Hank Aaron Stadium. The BayBears won the Southern League title in 1998. They were co-champs in 2004, and league champions again in 2011 and 2012.

The team moved to Madison, AL following the 2019 season and was renamed the Rocket City Trash Pandas.
