BPL@Night—Rickwood Field: A Century in America's Oldest Ballpark
In chronicling Rickwood Field’s history, noted author and journalist Allen Barra tells of segregated baseball and the legendary Negro Leagues. Though Rickwood Field was once a place where the Ku Klux Klan held rallies, it has now become a symbol of hope and triumph that reflects the evolution of a city where baseball was, for decades, the sole connecting point between blacks and whites.
