Sports News

This Sunday in B'ham, espn classic is re-enacting a baseball game from the era of the negro leagues. It is a real game, but using classic uniforms and equipment. That includes the bats and gloves. The home team will be dressed as the Birmingham Black Barons. The game is at America's oldest baseball park, Rickwood Field.

This should be cool, if for no other reason than Rickwood. It is a great place to see a game. This site has some great pictures and comments. The current Barrons, who played in Rickwood up to the mid-eighties, have a similar throw back game there once a year. It is always fun.

If you can't get to the game, watch it on the tube. You won't get to experience the stadium, but you will get commentary by Chuck D.
