As a huge baseball fan, i planned my entire vacation around the annual Rickwood Classic and was not diappointed. I love historic, old ballparks and this is as good as it gets. Rickwood is ready to celebrate its 100 birthday next year and has all the charm you would expect. There is a self guided tour you can go on to learn more about the park. It hasnt lost any of its character and for any baseball fan, this is a must see. The Classic was $9 for general admission which was fine because we sat in the first row above the box seats, right behind the plate. Great seats. Met some locals and many former Negro League ballplayers. Even got access to the roof and walked around the classic, unique light standards and got some awesome pictures. During the game a foul ball knocked out a light and the shards fell down on the dugout like a scene from the Natural, haha. 16 oz beers were priced at 4.50 which isnt too bad and the locals are so friendly. Wish i lived closer so i could attend every year!
