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.You can plan Birmingham trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

This is a true Birmingham treasure! I have been in Birmingham all my life and had never been. The baseball history here is incredible and second to none. Holds the title of America oldest ball park. I went with a group, we had access to everywhere in the park except the press box, and i took over 100 photos! I already want to go back and photo again!
