With how much the Biscuits were excited about their win Thursday, they were also disappointed.

"Where are all the fans?" one inquired after a mere announced crowd of 3,216 watched Montgomery's victory over Huntsville.

The people that were at Riverwalk were enthusiastic, particularly after the benches cleared in the sixth inning. Michael Coleman was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat after a home run. In the eighth, Coleman came back to the plate and the crowd greeted him by chanting his name.

If, some players said, there had only been more fans.

until Alabama and Auburn go 0 - 11 for next 100 years, this time of year will alway be football, no matter who play the game.

Just goes to show you what we've always professed: it doesn't matter if the team wins or loses. The experience is what sells. The team could finish in last or in first and the only things that will matter is how fun it is to come to a game and how good a job we did selling tickets.

Call of the game hit right on the head. The true baseball fans are the ones attending the playoff games. The Biscuits Management this year out did their selves. Great Job well done! It will be interesting to see if next will be as good or better than this year. Hey it been a great for three years, to me I hope it never slows down.

I'll also chime in that the Biscuits had a mere four days to sell tickets for Thursday's game. They had barely a week for last weekend's game.

They had more than six months to sell the regular season and group sales are a big chunk of the sales.

Hey, Call of the Game, I'm sure you've heard this plenty of times from some city residents -- Montgomery will only support a winner, so they better win.

I've been told our coverage of the team is only because the Advertiser is a minority owner, which isn't true.
