  • Baseball - Camden Yards

    Baltimore Sports & Outdoors

    If it weren't for sports, Baltimore wouldn't have much. Luckily, Baltimore sport fans have many heroes, and those are well-deserved. One of the greatest is Cal Ripken, the "Ironman" of baseball. He broke Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 consecutive games played, then went on to stretch the record to 2,632 straight games before he was finally pulled...

  • Hiking & Biking

    Baltimore Sports & Outdoors

    This paved trail is 10 feet wide, and over 15 miles long..... can you guess where it goes?? It's part of the Eastcoast Greenway system that will eventually extend from Maine to Florida. If you want to ride Horses, you'd better go to the North Central trail. The Rollerblade is King here, the paved trail is smooth with gentle slopes.

  • Football - Raven's Stadium

    Baltimore Sports & Outdoors

    When I was a kid, the football team in Baltimore was the Colts and the quarterback was Johnny Unitas. (I saw him in person once buying a suit in Schwartz Bros.) Then the Colts snuck out of town. The first new stadium in Baltimore (much admired) was Oriole Park (at Camden Yards). But we didn't have a football team and not much of a football stadium...

It was the first of the "retro" ballparks that were constructed in the 1990s and early 2000s in 11 other cities across the country. These "retro"...

  • Orioles

    This is my entry for the continuing saga of visiting every professional baseball stadium. The Baltimore Orioles' home is at Camden Yards. I visited in June of 1999. It was one of, if not the very, first in the new ballparks that were designed to look old. This set the standard of what a park could be - not a big box or bowl but a stylish nod to the...

  • Baltimore Ravens

    The Baltimore Ravens are a fair to middling NFL football team. They usually have an average winning record and in January, 2001, at the end of the 2000 season, the Ravens beat the New York Giants in the Super Bowl. They were originally the Cleveland Browns who unceremoniously packed up over a stadium and financial dispute at the end of the 1995 to...
