RE: 76
I also ran across a history of the park upon which Young Memorial Field now sits dating back to 1876.

Quote:The Jerry D. Young Memorial Field which now serves as the UAB Blazers Baseball Team’s home field was once the location of Behrens Park which was renamed Jordan Park in 1924. The park was located at 840 12th Street South at University Boulevard [8th Avenue South] and was a leading recreation area for the whole city of Birmingham...

The history of the park dates back to 1876, when Henry Behrens bought a 20-acre farm from the Elyton Land Company for $50 an acre. He reserved five acres for a park and sold off the rest in lots to people who came to work in the rolling mills. The residents were of all nationalities, German, Irish, Danish, English, Italian, Syrians, all new immigrants to America.

UAB baseball stadium was once the site of a ‘melting pot’ of Birmingham immigrants
