15th Annual Rickwood Classic: A Resounding Success

The 2010 Rickwood Classic is in-the-book.   The Friends of Rickwood extend a most sincere thanks to everyone who helped make Wednesday’s Classic a resounding success — the Birmingham Barons Baseball Club, the Tennessee Smokies organization, the Southern League, Minor League Baseball, the City of Birmingham, all of our sponsors, and especially the 9,448 fans of the grand old game who spent the afternoon with us at America’s oldest baseball park.

The 15th annual Rickwood Classic could not have happened without the support of all of our sponsors.  To each of them, we say, “Thank you!”

  1. Had a wonderful time at the Classic!! My two grandsons and I drove down from Franklin, TN. One grandson got a baseball from one of the Smkoies players and the other got a bat. My first trip to Rickwood was in April, 1955, 55 years ago. We will be back for the 100th anniversary celebration.

  2. My brother and I flew from Northern California to see this year’s Rickwood Classic, as a part of our 13-game 13-day baseball road trip vacation. This was our first time seeing the south, so it was also our first time at Rickwood. Rickwood was tremendous, we loved it! I wasn’t expecting to be allowed on to the field after the game, that was a pleasant surprise. I have many pictures and a few brief video clips of the Rickwood Classic posted on my website.
