A Behind the Scenes look at Camden Yards with Kate Drabinski
Plus a free ticket to the Red Sox vs. Orioles game
Friday, June 14, 2019 · 5:30 PM - 7 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 at Pratt Street & Penn at 5:30 and will be at the gates and ready for the first pitch against the Boston Red Sox at 7:05pm. The Orioles tickets are FREE and will be handed out to each attendee during the tour.
