13th Annual Rickwood Classic: In the Book
On Wednesday, May 28, in excess of 7,500 fans of the great American pastime flocked to historic Rickwood Field to celebrate their love of the game, and to help keep alive the old ball park on Birmingham’s west side.
The Friends of Rickwood organization would like to express its sincere gratitude to each and every fan who attended the game, as well as to our partner, the Birmingham Barons Baseball Club, without whom this great community event could not take place.
As stewards of the park, we sometimes (okay, all of the time) have difficulty being objective about the magic of the place, so please visit the links below to sample images and thoughts on the game from presumably objective patrons of the park:
