A brief report in today's Birmingham (Ala.) News says that Birmingham will serve as the host city for 2014 Bassmaster Classic, confirming previous speculation that the sport's signature event would return to Alabama.
According to the article, Alabama governor Robert Bentley and Birmingham Mayor William Bell will join other city officials and area leaders and presumably B.A.S.S. officials today in announcing what they are calling a "major event" coming to Birmingham in 2014.
No mention was made of what lake would serve as the venue, but it's been widely speculated that Lake Guntersville could be in line to host its second Classic.
