Behind the Scenes and a Ballgame at Camden Yards
with Kate Drabinski
Friday, July 14, 2017 · 5 PM - 7:05 PM
Camden Yards is best known to today’s Baltimoreans as the home of the Baltimore Orioles, but it has a colorful history that long predates our home team. Before hitting the game join Kate Drabinski for a tour of Camden Yards and the surrounding neighborhoods. Topics will include the role of the B&O Railroad in building Baltimore, the Pratt Street Riots and Baltimore’s role in the Civil War, and the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, a signature moment in the growth of the country’s labor movement.
Transportation & other details:
We will meet on the shuttle parked in front of the Performing Art & Humanities Building at 5:00pm, or at Pratt & Penn at 5:30 and will be at the gates and ready for the first pitch against the Chicago Cubs at 7:05pm. Tickets are $5 and for sale at the Campus Information Center inside the Commons.
