Alabama State, the Montgomery Biscuits, and MAX Credit Union Announce the MAX StingFest

March 1, 2018 - Southern League (SL) - Montgomery Biscuits News Release

MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Montgomery Biscuits, along with Alabama State University and MAX Credit Union announced that the Hornets' game against Mississippi State University will be played at Montgomery's Riverwalk Stadium in April.

The contest between Alabama State and Mississippi State was originally scheduled for the Wheeler-Watkins Baseball Complex on April 11, and is scheduled for 6 pm first pitch.

"We are thrilled to have teamed up with our good friends at MAX Credit Union to bring Alabama State Baseball to Riverwalk Stadium", said Biscuits Chief Operating Officer, Brendon Porter. "We will provide the same game day experience for The Stingfest as fans enjoy at a Biscuits' game, including a post-game MAX Fireworks Show. This is just the beginning of what I am sure will be a strong partnership between the Biscuits and Alabama State, both on and off the baseball field."

The two schools have not met before, with the first meeting scheduled for this season. The Hornets are coming off of back-to-back appearances in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championship game and a 2016 NCAA Regional appearance, while Mississippi State has won 11 SEC championships and appeared in nine College World Series.

The game will be the second of the season against an SEC opponent for Alabama State, as they played Alabama on the last day of February.

"We are extremely excited to partner with the Montgomery Biscuits to host our game against Mississippi State University," Alabama State interim athletic director Jennifer Lynne Williams said. "Our department's motto is, 'commit to connect'; and the relationship that's developed through this partnership will only strengthen our athletic department's visibility in the community as well as the overall brand of the University. It truly is a great time to be a Hornet, and we encourage all of our fans, alumni and friends to come out to the ballpark on April 11, 2018."

Tickets for The Stingfest range from $8 to $15, with discounts available to Alabama State students, military, first responders, and MAX employees and customers. Tickets can be purchased at the Riverwalk Stadium box office, online at, and by phone by calling 334-323-2255.
