Find Your Field of Dreams
With the Baltimore Orioles holding down “The Yard” in Baltimore and six iconic minor league parks across the state, Maryland is the perfect spot for a baseball road trip. Follow this guide to “touch ‘em all.”
1 Baltimore Orioles: Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore
When Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened in 1992, it changed the landscape of baseball forever; and decades later, it remains the best place on Earth to enjoy the greatest game on the planet. Catch just one game at “The Yard” and you’ll understand why.
2 Aberdeen Ironbirds: Ripken Stadium, Aberdeen
Just off 95 near the top of the Chesapeake Bay, Ripken Stadium is the Taj Mahal of minor league baseball. Home to the Aberdeen IronBirds, the Baltimore Orioles’ Short-Season, Single-A Class-A New York-Penn League affiliate, this gem of a park is Iron Man (and Aberdeen native) Cal Ripken Jr.’s love letter to America’s pastime.
3 Southern Maryland Blue Crabs: Regency Furniture Stadium, Waldorf
Settling sweetly into the Southern Maryland countryside, Regency Furniture Stadium borrows design cues from the historic tobacco barns that dot the nearby countryside; and the hand-operated score board gives this new park serious old-time charm.
4 Delmarva Shorebirds: Arthur W. Perdue Stadium, Salisbury
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.
