Montgomery Biscuits Have Recipe for Success

In just four seasons, the Biscuits have become a big hit.    Fan Marti Ray says, "I fell in love with the biscuits."

It's not just the game that draws the fans in.  Biscuits baseball is a multi-faceted entertainment experience. "We are the largest entertainment venue in Montgomery," said Biscuits Spokesperson Jim Tocco.

There's Big Mo, good food and a fan favorite, the hotdog and biscuit blaster.  A lot goes on behind the scenes that fans never see. It takes 300 Biscuits team members to pull off all of it. Tocco says, "In the span of four hours, we have to entertain 7,000 people and feed 7,000 people."

For those who can't make it to the ballpark, the Biscuits make sure you still catch all the action.  It's broadcast on the radio and you watch the game online through "It has brought the game to a lot of player's families around the country and the world," says Tocco.

With the second highest ticket sales for minor league baseball, you can say the Biscuits have found their recipe for success. "We take care of our facilities and we take care of our fans to make sure they have a good time," says owner Tom Dickson.

They say lightning never strikes twice, but the Biscuits say not so. The Biscuits clinched the division on the same date as last year, they're playing the same team this time around, and if they sweep Huntsville, they'll win the championship on the same date as they did last year.

The last team to win back-to-back Southern League Championships was The Montgomery Rebels.

You can watch a live web cast of the Biscuits game Thursday night. The first pitch is at 7:05.
