The Hubbertville Lions baseball team got a thrill that few modern baseball players get to experience - playing at the historic Rickwood Field in Birmingham. Rickwood Field opened on August 18, 1910, and predates the opening of Boston’s Fenway Park by two years. Though no longer used regularly, Rickwood Field is still considered the oldest baseball park in America.
