“he oldest surviving professional baseball park”

Rickwood Field, located in Birmingham, Alabama, is the oldest surviving 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 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. Rickwood Field is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

See a baseball game like they did in the heyday of the sport with wooden scoreboards, and old fashion grandstands. Rickwood Field opened in Downtown Birmingham in August of 1910 as the home field for the minor league Birmingham Barons and the Birmingham Black Barons.
