This review is from: Rickwood Field: A Century in America's Oldest Ballpark (Hardcover)
I visited Rickwood Field for the first time in June 2010 and fell in love with this old ballpark. The game was secondary, it was just a wonderful classic baseball experience, roaming around a 100 year old ballpark. Allen Barra has done a wonderful job of capturing that experience in this book. It is a great account of history in Birmingham, how it relates to the struggles of the South during the Depression, and with segregation and integration, and especially how it affected baseball and Rickwood Field. Barra has lots of wonderful anecdotes and interviews with those who played there. I highly recommend the book, then go to [...] and click on "history" for more old photos. Then plan a trip there. Rickwood Field is a living baseball museum, and Barra has captured the story so well. A must read for baseball lovers.
