The second annual MAX Capital City Classic between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers will be played Tuesday, March 9, 2010 at Riverwalk Stadium in Montgomery, and tickets for this year's event will go on sale Monday through the Montgomery Biscuits Ticket Office.

"The Capital City Classic was a terrific atmosphere last year and the crowd brought a lot of energy to the game." Alabama Coach Mitch Gaspard said. "We felt like the Montgomery Biscuits did an outstanding job in planning for this event and we are looking forward to playing again this year in one the top minor league facilities in the country."

Alabama and Auburn will be meeting in a non-conference game for the second straight year. The Crimson Tide and Tigers met annually throughout the state during the 1980s and 1990s, including a seven-game series at Montgomery's Paterson Field from 1990-96. Alabama won four of those seven meetings, including a 2-0 decision on April 2, 1996 in Montgomery. In 1993 and 1995, the Tide and Tiger's played one SEC game at Paterson Field. Auburn won 11-3 in 1993, while Alabama beat top-ranked Auburn 10-5 in 1995 in front of a then state-record 8,543 fans on May 12, 1995.
