August 18 Birthday Open-House Event

The Friends of Rickwood and the baseball community will be celebrating the park’s 100th birthday on Wednesday, August 18. 

The event will be an open-house of-sorts, including tours and collector exhibits, dignitaries speaking, theatrical baseball presentations, books signings by several Rickwood authors, and a shortened ballgame featuring players from the Great South League, a summer collegiate wood bat league.

Gates will open at 2:00 pm central with an opportunity to tour the park, with the program beginning at 3:00, (opening game time on August 18, 1910), and the game will run 4:30 – 6:00 pm. 

The event is open to the public, free-of-charge.
