Ladd-Peebles Stadium - {CATEGORY}

Ladd Peebles Stadium (formerly Ernest F. Ladd Memorial Stadium) is a stadium in Mobile, Alabama. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field for the Senior Bowl, the GMAC Bowl, the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic, and the University of South Alabama Jaguars. It opened in 1948 and has a seating capacity of 40,646. It was originally named for Ernest F. Ladd, a local banking magnate who died in 1941. In 1997, it was renamed to honor E. B. Peebles, a civic leader who was instrumental in the revitalization of the Senior Bowl. In addition to football, the stadium is also used for concerts (maximum capacity 50,000), boxing matches, high school graduations, trade shows, and festivals. Ed Sullivan, Jimmy Buffett, and many other entertainers have performed at Ladd Peebles Stadium. The stadium was constructed in 1948 with private funding from a local banker wishing to create a permanent honor to his mentor, Ernest F. Ladd. The stadium's first game was a meeting between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Vanderbilt Commodores on October 2, 1948 which ended in a 14 - 14 tie. From 1948 to 1968, with the exceptions of 1960 and 1962, the Crimson Tide played one game per year in Ladd Stadium. In 1958, legendary head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant coached his first game as Alabama's head coach in Ladd Stadium when the Crimson Tide fell 13-3 to LSU. Ladd-Peebles Stadium also played host to numerous other major college games over the years. Auburn played eight games at Ladd from 1948-55, playing the likes of Clemson, Florida and Ole Miss. The University of Southern Mississippi was also a consistent Ladd Stadium tenant, as the Golden Eagles played 17 games there from 1950 through 1974. Southern Mississippi's opponents included schools such as Texas A&M, Florida State and Alabama.
