Looking for the perfect way to beat beach traffic to Ocean City? Catch a Shorebirds game. Located right off of Route 50 and just a Chris Davis home run away from the beach, Perdue’s classic, three level brick concourse combines the essence of those glorious, golden-age minor league parks with all of the modern amenities. Home of the Orioles’ Single-A, South Atlantic League affiliate, Perdue Stadium welcomes kids with its ornate outfield carousel (since this is Purdue Stadium, you’ll want to ride the chicken). And the best part- by the time the Shore Birds chalk another one in the win column, the traffic will be gone.

The House that Chicken Built: When you catch a game at a stadium named after Frank Perdue, you’ve got to try the chicken. You can’t go wrong with anything from the stadium’s famous “Chicken Fry-Fry” stand.

Cooperstown of the Chesapeake: Home to legends of the game like Harold Baines and Hall of Famers Jimmie Fox, Frank “Home Run” Baker, and Julius “Judy” Johnson, baseball has long been part of the fabric of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Explore the shore’s rich and colorful baseball history at the Maryland Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Fame, housed in the stadium’s grand concourse; it’s a true treasure of the game.
