In case you missed it, there is a champion in the Heart of the Valley. The Huntsville Stars are your first-half champions of the Southern League. Unfortunately, their loyal fan base is few in number. The club averages just more than 2,200 fans a game, which is 9th out of 10th in the Southern League.
Even though they put a quality product on the field, few seem to show their support. One reason may be the ball park. Joe Davis Stadium is certainly functional, but it lacks the family-friendly attractions that have made minor league baseball one of the hottest tickets in towns both larger and smaller than Huntsville.
