Rickwood Field is an incredibly old baseball stadium. You will feel like you step back in time. Every May the Birmingham Barons play one of their games there, usually with a theme, and it's a great time to go.

My husband and I went to the 20th Annual Rickwood Classic this year. It is America's oldest ballpark and the Barons were wearing replica uniforms honoring the 1948 team. Darryl Strawberry was on hand to throw out the first pitch and sign autographs. A jazz...More
