Rickwood Field Park, Birmingham

(4.7/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Rickwood Field, located in Birmingham, Alabama, is the oldest professional baseball park in the United States. It was built for the Birmingham Barons in 1910 by industrialist and team-owner Rick Woodward and has served as the home park for the Birmingham Barons and the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro Leagues. Though the Barons moved their home games to the Hoover Met in the suburbs, and most recently to Regions Field in Birmingham, Rickwood Field has been preserved and is undergoing gradual restoration as a "working museum" where baseball's history can be experienced. The Barons also play one regular season game a year at Rickwood Field. Rickwood Field is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • My dad use to take me to baseball games there, he loved baseball, that was in 1972. We lived right up the street in Bush Hills. Dad is gone now, but I thank Rickwood Field for the memories.
  • Just attended the Rickwood Classic, great event at a great venue. I would give this stadium more stars if it were possible.
  • Awesome historical ballpark must see for all baseball fans
  • 110 Hall of Famers have played at Rickwood Field! Including Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Yogi Berra, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, and Babe Ruth! Rickwood Field is an amazing place to visit!
  • Played on this field as a 17 year old. Truly an amazing experience and to learn about the past greats who played on this field and the history of the field.
