Inside Look at the Rickwood Classic
As a broadcaster, I'm able visit some of the top baseball venues in the country, but the Rickwood Classic in Birmingham is a special event for me. This year's game between the Tennessee Smokies and Birmingham Barons marked my second opportunity to call the game, which was an honor.
The entire experience of the Rickwood Classic is tremendous because you step back into a moment in baseball history. I had the privilege of playing at Rickwood Field during my time in the Birmingham Industrial League so this place has a little extra meaning to me. But you think about all of the history and the legends that have stepped on that field, and it gives you goosebumps.
My team at the Tennessee Smokies had a chance to put a video together to help capture feel of the 2013 Rickwood Classic, and I wanted to share it with you. If you ever have a chance to make the game, which is in May every year, seize the opportunity!
