April Sports


The crack of a bat, bounce of a basketball, the swing of a golf club and a roar of engines are all signs of April. For fans of multiple sports April is a great time of the year.

If you enjoy basketball then your eyes will be virtually glued to the Final Four the first weekend in April. If you enjoy motor sports, then the return of the Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on the first weekend of April probably interests you. If NASCAR is more your speed, then the GEICO 500 taking place in Talladega the last weekend of the month is a must see. The Masters Golf Tournament covers several days during the second week of April at the magnificent Augusta National Golf Club, and baseball season begins this month.

Not to be left out, the new Birmingham Legion FC Professional Soccer Club will be regularly competing from now through the fall. Even most college football teams will hold their annual spring games in April and some hockey teams have a few games left. For Minor League Baseball fans the Birmingham Barons, Mobile Bay Bears and Montgomery Biscuits all start their home seasons in April. So sports fans get ready to cheer on your favorite teams and pros this month while enjoying the experience.
