Just off I-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. The stadium is Camden Yards in miniature, right down to the Marriott Hotel situated in left field and built to look like the big league club’s famous B&O warehouse. The park’s open concourse design invites fans to stroll the stands without ever missing a pitch. And if you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate, consider renting one of Ripken Stadium’s luxury skyboxes to catch a glimpse of this year’s crop of baby-birds. It’s big league fun at minor league prices.

The Crack of the Bat….and Jumbo Steamed Crabs!
If you’re looking for an only-in-Maryland experience, try your hand (and hammer!) at a good-old-fashioned Maryland crab feast in the outfield bleachers of Ripken Stadium. Served up by legendary local favorite, Conrad’s Crabs, the Conrad’s Crab Deck is a grand-slam good time for locals and baseball road-trippers alike.

Where Little Legends are Forged: In addition to the IronBirds nest, the Ripken Baseball complex is home to kid-scale stadium replicas of Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, old Yankee Stadium, and Baltimore’s old Memorial Stadium.
