From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Alabama has several minor league semi-professional teams including four minor league baseball teams, and one Arena Football League team. Alabama is the second-most populous U.S. state without a major professional sports league franchise (it is the most populous if one considers Virginia to be the home of the NFL's Washington Redskins and NHL's Washington Capitals, which have their practice facilities and operational headquarters in Northern Virginia).[1][2]
