Birmingham, Ala. – The 2013 Southwestern Athletic Conference Baseball Championship is headed to Fort Worth, Texas. The tournament, which is slated for May 15-19, will be held at the historic 5,100-seat LaGrave Field.

LaGrave Field opened in 1926. During its existence, LaGrave Field has hosted nearly 50 members of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. That list includes Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Sparky Anderson, Yogi Bera, Roy Campanella, Joe DiMaggio, Larry Doby, Willie Mayes, Willie McCovey, Stan Musial, Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams, just to name a few.

LaGrave Field is the present-day home of the Fort Worth Cats minor league baseball team. The Cats are members of the United Baseball League.

The Fort Worth area is home to over 758,000 residents. The nation’s 16th-largest city recorded the 12th-largest numeric increase in new residents adding over 16,000 between April 2010 and July 2011 according to new population estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau.
