MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Ninth Annual MAX Capital City Classic at Riverwalk Stadium returns on March 28 when the Auburn Tigers look to defend their trophy from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Montgomery Biscuits are proud to host the next installment of the Iron Bowl of Baseball between Auburn and Alabama on Tuesday, March 28th at 6:35 PM. Tickets for the MAX Capital City Classic are now on sale featuring Reserved Seating for $22 or General Admission tickets for $15. Tickets can be purchased through the Biscuits Box Office in person or over the phone at 334-323-2255 or online at MAXCapitalCityClassic.com.

Last year's sellout crowd was the eighth in the history of the event, so fans will want to purchase their tickets ahead of time to guarantee their seats to be a part of the action. Fans should also remember to stick around after the game for the first MAX Fireworks Show of the baseball season.

Auburn holds an all-time 7-1 record over the Crimson Tide in the MAX Capital City Classic. New Alabama skipper Greg Goff will be looking to get the Tide rolling again in 2017. On the other side of the diamond, Auburn boasts two players ranked in Baseball America's Top 100 Draft Prospect List with RHP Keegan Thompson ranked #45 and third-baseman Josh Anthony coming in at the #61 spot.

"We're excited to once again be hosting the MAX Capital City Classic at Riverwalk Stadium on March 28th", Biscuits General Manager, Scott Trible, said. "We saw one of the biggest crowds in Riverwalk history at 2016's game and we hope to improve upon that even more in 2017. The two schools are both putting forth great baseball programs, so it should be an exciting game. Plus, our partners at MAX Credit Union will make sure fans leave happy with an amazing post-game MAX Fireworks Spectacular."
