Hagerstown: Go Deep into Baseball’s Past and Beer’s Bright Present at a Suns Game

Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown may look familiar, as it’s been featured in numerous movies and television shows trying to capture baseball’s Golden Age. Built in 1930, and one of just a handful of ballparks still standing from baseball’s classic era. Municipal Stadium once hosted barnstorming teams from the Negro Leagues and now is home to the Nationals’ Single-A Suns.

You can watch your favorite Big League ball while enjoying organic cheeses, fresh local meats, and the only craft beers brewed in Maryland’s Appalachian mountains.

Extra Innings—Visit Antietam National Battlefield: Abner Doubleday fired the first Union shot of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln constructed a baseball field at the White House. Baseball was already popular in New York but, played by soldiers, the Civil War brought baseball to the rest of the nation. Visit the battlefield to pay your respects to the bloodiest day in American history and gain a deeper understanding of the era that gave us our national pastime.
