With the Mobile BayBears set to end a 23 year run, News-5 looks back at the best of the ‘Bears.
We are naming the WKRG News 5 All Time Mobile BayBears Team on wkrg.dom.
The selections are based on the player’s or coach’s overall career, not just their time in Mobile. We will reveal members one at a time as the BayBears approach their final game on Sept. 2
