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.
