HOOVER, Ala. (May 21, 2022) - SEC Baseball FanFest is returning to the Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament next week, May 24-29, at the Hoover Metropolitan Complex. SEC Baseball FanFest is free and open to the public.

SEC Baseball FanFest is an interactive and entertainment fan event featuring food, music and games held in the Finley Center, the complex's 155,000 square foot event center adjacent to Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. FanFest returns after a two-year hiatus due to the impact of the COVID pandemic.

Among the features of FanFest will be a putt-putt golf course, driving simulators, a giant indoor slide, an obstacle course and an assortment of arcade games and inflatable games that include speed pitch, home run derby and axe throwing.

Fans can watch all the games on a giant video screen while also enjoying access to a basketball court, batting cage, and a quad euro bungee jump plus pool, ping pong, foosball and air hockey tables. Fans will be able to simulate an umpire with an Oculus Umpire training unit and participate in remote control racing. An outdoor zip line is available to fans with a ticket to the game.

Also featured at FanFest will be musical entertainment presented by various artists throughout the week in the "Let's Play Tunes" concert series.

A special feature in 2022 will be a traveling exhibit from the Negro League Baseball Museum in Kansas City, presented by Regions Bank.

SEC Baseball FanFest will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 10 pm, Friday 2 pm to 10 pm, Saturday 11 am to 7 pm and Sunday from 11:30 am to the start of the seventh inning of the championship game.
