Rocket City Trash Pandas (SL/DAS) 2020-present

Toyota Field is a baseball park in Madison, Alabama. It is located west of Huntsville, the metropolitan area's largest city, and sits on a major thoroughfare, Interstate 565. It serves as the home of the Rocket City Trash Pandas,[6] the relocated minor league team formerly known as the Mobile BayBears, a team that plays in the Double-A South (formerly the Southern League). It was scheduled to open April 15, 2020[2] and seats up to 7,000 people.[7] Groundbreaking occurred on June 9, 2018.[7][1] Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama purchased the naming rights to the stadium.[8]

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting the United States in the spring of 2020, the minor league baseball season that year was canceled.[9] However, some limited-attendance public events were staged by the Trash Pandas that summer at Toyota Field to cultivate interest[] prior to the team's opening game on May 11, 2021.[10]
