All-Star Fans Enjoying Montgomery


By Ellis Eskew

It's North versus South at the Riverwalk Stadium as AHSAA All-Star baseball gets underway.
While athletes battle it out on the field...they've got a lot of support in the stands.

"Grandparents, friends, a little brother here to support him, very fortunate that he has a large support group," said Alexander City mom Sonya Hendon.

These fans have traveled from all over the state to see their favorite athletes and take in all that Montgomery has to offer.

 "We've just been hanging around, going to all the places around. They have really good food at the restaurants," said Hudson Storey.

Hudson Storey came from Huntsville to cheer on his big brother, along with the rest of his family.

"We stayed at the hotel right here by the Biscuits Stadium, just went to restaurants right in here. And you can do everything. If you want to go to Walmart or want to hangout in the hotel, you're taken care of," said mom Vickye.

These baseball fans say they are fans of the Capital City as well.

"We do most of our shipping here. It has a lot to offer. We've come to several Biscuits games, and you know, the State Fair. There are a lot of things. One thing we would like to do is the boat ride and cruise and everything," said Hendon.

Which makes a win for these fans and a win for Montgomery too.

 "The Riverwalk area is great. There's a lot to do a lot of great restaurants. This is her first time down here. I was just showing her as we were driving through and the historic buildings and the river. It's great and I think they're doing well with what they're trying to accomplish down here," said Birmingham mom Lisa McCormick.
