My family and I spend an hour at Rickwood on a Monday morning. There is so much history and it gives you chill bumps.The field is open during the day for self-guided tours. I appreciate what the people of Birmingham are doing to try and keep it open and standing.
It is in bad shape and it's hard to imagine they hold a Barons game there once a year. The field is very well done, but that's about it. The place needs so much work. Some simple fixes would be to fix some of the broken chairs, pressure wash the bird droppings in the small concourse and entrance, purge all the trash and junk that is stuffed into open areas under the grandstands and repair cracks/chunks in the concrete steps. There was even an abandoned car with its windows broken out under the right field grandstands.
Nevertheless, it was great to be on that field and throw baseball with my son and daughter. I encourage anyone to visit that park and absorb the history within!
