No one shows up at practically any game. It's too cold to go to Regions Park in February and March so why would anyone want to go in April and May either?
There are no promotions for any UAB program other than football and basketball. From that standpoint, the Barons should not help UAB as they just don't care anyway.
It's not all on the UAB fans either. The folks running every program do nothing to make the fans want to go in the first place. Basically no one cares.
The Barons have had poor teams over the last 6 years too. But the Barons draw sell out crowds practically every night. They have a great staff, have great promotions and are extremely fan friendly. UAB and Shoop put up a fence at YMF to run fans off.
I see the point. Why support a program that no one cares about in the first place?

Have Thirsty Thursday UAB games at Regions Field and UAB would sell out regularly as well...

RE: UAB Baseball
I certainly don't want to turn this into Barons bashing. I have been a fan of the Barons since the early 80s when they moved back to the B'ham area. I love going to UAB games at RF but I am starting to think that being able to play a few games a year there is actually hurting our baseball program because people seem to use RF as an excuse to not give YF the attention it needs.

There is no way the crowds I have seen at our games at RF when the weather has been nice could even come close to fitting in YF and more importantly most of the crowd wouldn't want to go. As was pointed out earlier, we have drawn nice crowds there and we can't even adequately promote the games at RF because we could get kicked out at the last minute. The Barons have drawn really big crowds but not because they have a huge fan base in Birmingham. The vast majority of the people in the stands don't even know where the Barons are in the standings or even what league they play in. They go watch them because they have a really nice park in a fun area and they are looking for cheap entertainment. I wonder what the Baron's attendance would be if they played all their home games at YF?

I think you'd be hard pressed to find an on campus baseball stadium with more potential.
