Yeah, we know we’re a few weeks out of the Rickwood Classic, but you can still see what makes Birmingham’s Rickwood Field so awesome in videos from Tennessee Smokies (Class AA; Southern League) broadcaster Mick Gillispie.
We’ve attended the Rickwood Classic in the past and had a ball, so we’d highly recommend the event for anyone who loves baseball in general and old ballparks in particular. (You can read our thoughts on the Classic here.) Rickwood Field opened on Aug. 18, 1910 and still feels as it did back then.
