The Barons formerly played in Hoover Metropolitan Stadium, located in Hoover, Alabama; the park seats 10,800 fans. They moved there in 1987 from historic Rickwood Field in Birmingham's West End community. They still play one "throwback" game called the Rickwood Classic each season in period uniforms at the old facility. In November 2010, the team announced plans to return to Birmingham. The new $64 million Regions Field was completed and unveiled on Opening Day April 10, 2013.
The Barons were briefly involved in a media frenzy by virtue of being the minor-league club that Michael Jordan played for in 1994 after his first retirement from the NBA.
