Create an itinerary including Rickwood Field Park
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.

  • I will ever be able to express the amazing day and love of America’s oldest ball park to ya’ll. Came in town for a tournament and we’re blessed enough to play here. Gerald Watkins, thank you for the tours, the stories and sheer hospitality. If you love baseball GO. Mama Von… best BBQ Rib sandwich ever! There’s a small museum to enjoy for Free, so if compelled donate to help support fields. Neighbor hood is not a little rough but the respect of this stadium shows. So much history.
  • This place is incredible. Visited Bham last April and groundskeeper gave us a tour. The history is just incredible. The field is well kept and the original places like dugouts and press box are amazing to check out. Wish I could watch a game sometime here. If you get a chance pay a visit to America’s oldest ballpark.
