The “Friends of Rickwood” is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation charged with preserving the park and restoring Rickwood Field to its former glory.  In the 1980’s, founding member, Tom Cosby, went to Terry Slaughter, head of Slaughter Hanson Advertising and told him, ‘We let them tear down the Terminal Station, now are we going to stand by and let the oldest ballpark in America get torn down, too?” What started out as a small group of people interested in saving an old aging baseball park has evolved into a dynamic group of hard working people dedicated to perserving Rickwood Field for future generations to enjoy. You can support their efforts by becoming a member or making a donation. Many thanks!
