BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The third annual Magic City Diamond Classic is quickly approaching, and while the teams remain the same, the venue is changing.

The rivalry between Alabama A&M and Alabama State in baseball is moving from Rickwood Field to Regions Field this season.

“This is just a great facility, not that Rickwood wasn’t,” said ASU head coach Jose Vasquez. “Regions Field has a big league park feel to it, so I know our players are really going to think this is special.”

"We’ve played here before,” said A&M head coach Mitch Hill. “I do think this location is going to raise the bar for a rivalry that is already through the roof.”

The Hornets and Bulldogs will meet out on the diamond April 7 at 5:30 p.m.
