Built into a lush, green hillside, Frederick’s Harry Grove Stadium has the feeling of a miniature Chavez Ravine. Home to the Orioles’ Advanced Single-A Carolina League team, Keys games are a great opportunity to catch future big-leaguers on the rise. The open concourse at Harry Grove with its impeccable sightlines mean you’ll never miss a play. Families will love the park’s third base side picnic area, first base side “Giant Eagle Fun Zone” and the gentle, grassy slopes that flank the outfield are perfect for picnics.
All About the Beer
Frederick Maryland may be the craft beer capital of the East Coast, and Keys games make a great excuse to sample some of the best. With an exhaustive selection of local craft beers on tap, don’t miss the Brewer’s Alley stadium pub or a selection of Flying Dog Flying Dog Hop Deck Bordeleau wines beers hard to find outside of Frederick.
Oh Say, You Should Go See Francis Scott Key
The Star-Spangled Banner is an integral part of every baseball game in America, but only in Frederick can you sing it within ear-shot of its author’s final resting place. Frederick native and team name-sake Francis Scott Key cemented his place in history when he penned our National Anthem, and his grave is just a pop-fly from the park. Pay your respects before the game, then join in the singing of his classic right before it’s time to “Play ball!”
