Can you hear their voices? The laughter, excitement and anticipation of the game. ‘Tickets please’ rings out as patrons line-up to enter historical Rickwood Park. The rich heritage of this place still beats in our hearts.
They played here, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Burleigh Grimes, Willie Mays and many others. Each brought their special chapter to America’s oldest baseball park located in Birmingham, Alabama.
The park is active today with college and high school games.

On Saturday, October 22 2011, BJC Animal Control, Dog Days of Birmingham, and Bama Bully Rescue collaborated to celebrate the National Day of Pit Bull Awareness and Halloween fun for canines and care-givers.
Participating area animal rescues, pet-food businesses, professional animal-care providers, and a political organization (AVRAL) supportive of companion-animals made the event educational and fun.
This pup, available for adoption at the event, shared his knowing and willingness for the next part of his life-adventure through his expressive eye.
You can see an album from the event here.
