Choccolocco Monsters in the Park
August 19, 2021
The city of Oxford, along with the Sunbelt Baseball League and Ignite Sports, are proud to unveil a new summer collegiate wood bat team playing on Signature Field at Choccolocco Park, the Choccolocco Monsters!
The Monsters will be taking part in the Sunbelt Baseball League for the 2022 season that will run from June-August that summer. The Sunbelt League was established in 2005 and is partially funded by Major League Baseball to allow prospective players in college to extend their seasons with more games and gain valuable experience in their development, all while providing family-friendly entertainment to the area all summer long.
Currently, the Sunbelt Baseball League is made up of nine teams (including the Monsters), mainly centered out of Metro-Atlanta. The Alpharetta Aviators are the current league champions after defeating the Columbus Chatt-a-Hoots in the championship series last weekend.
The Monsters are already on social media, with the handle Bama Monsters on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Be sure to follow the pages to stay up-to-date on everything the new team is doing ahead of their inaugural season.
Season tickets for the Monsters 2022 season are already on sale at monsters.isportstix.com. Full season ticket prices run from $100-$220 for a full 14-game+ season in the SBL. The team offices can be contacted for more information at 256-770-9062.
“We are very proud as a league to be adding the Choccolocco Monsters to our ranks. We are looking forward to a very successful partnership between the league, the city, and Ignite Sports to have another quality ball club in the Sunbelt,” says SBL Commissioner Todd Pratt. “Adding a team like this creates more excitement for our fans, the players we hope to recruit to play and of course for the people of Oxford to have a team to call their own. This is another great step forward as we continue to grow as a league to give back to the great game of baseball.”
“We’re honored to bring SBL baseball to eastern Alabama,” newly appointed team president Scott Brand said. “It’s a beautiful stadium and field here in Oxford and we can’t wait to make it a fun place to bring the family and come watch a ball game. It’s a great product the SBL has, and players are going to want to play in a great facility like this one.”
