The Classic

I am in Birmingham, unable to get that Randy Newman song out of my head. If you have read this prattling for any length of time, you have heard me write about Rickwood Field, the "old girl" of ballparks. I have flown in to photograph the "Classic" game, an annual event. The AA Southern Association Birmingham Barons will play a regulation game there tomorrow. I have photographed 5 or 6 of them as well as having visited the park several other times. I will see my pals Danny, Gabie, Cathy, Carol, Clarence, Lamar, Pepper, Dan and many, many others. I have used this photo before but it is the late Ernest Withers, who photographed here and David Brewer, the Director of Rickwood. This is Christmas in May if you ask me.
