Rich Allen, 1964 Barons, Visits the Park

Rickwood Board member Clarence Watkins and I enjoyed a visit this week with Rich Allen, a member of the 1964 Birmingham Barons, the first integrated Birmingham team.  Rich and his friend, Eric Mattson, stopped in Birmingham on their trip from Minnesota to South Florida.

Please see files below.
