The City of Madison has approved funding for improvements to Toyota Square


MADISON, Alabama (RELATED) – The Rocket City Garbage Pandas are gearing up for their third season at Toyota Field. However, the team will need to make some improvements to the stadium before the first pitch of the 2023 season.

With a nearly new setup, many people ask, “why?” He asks the question.

In February 2021, MLB completed the realignment of 120 minor league teams. Part of the agreement between the major and minor leagues is a new set of standards for all MiLB ballparks across the country. This has led many teams to make major adjustments to their stadiums.

Unfortunately for Toyota Field, these standards came soon after construction was completed.

According to a resolution shared by the city of Madison, Toyota Field was awarded a score of 78 during the facility’s audit. The standards require all minor league teams to “have no more than 9 points at the start of the 2025 season.”

The city and the Garbage Pandas have created a two-phase plan to bring the stadium up to the new MiLB standards. The first phase should be completed by the beginning of the 2023 season.
