The 1917 Birmingham Barons were the 7th Birmingham Barons team to play at Rickwood Field, built by owner Rick Woodward. Opening day attendance at Rickwood was 9,207. During the season 115,090 fans came through the gates.

The 1917 Barons finished 3rd in the Southern Association with a record of 87-66. They were managed by Carlton Molesworth.

The 1917 season was notable for three no-hitters thrown by three different Barons pitchers at home (Ralph Comstock, Carment Hill and Ray Milligan). A Little Rock Travelers pitcher also recorded a no-hitter at Rickwood that year.
