Baseball in Birmingham, by Clarence Watkins, is a photo journal of baseball's existence in Birmingham. The Birmingham Barons were a charter member of the old Southern League in 1885. Built in 1910, Rickwood Field, longtime home of the Barons, is recognized as the oldest surviving, professional baseball park in the nation. In spite of the popularity of football in Alabama, Birmingham has been and continues to be a leader in minor league baseball. Join us as Mr. Watkins shares the stories of the game of summer. Wednesday, June 23, noon.
