Baseball in Northwest Maryland


Plans are all set for a weekend visit to an area rich in colonial and civil war history…the northwestern portion of Maryland. Here, there are a couple of small cities on either side of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where I’ll check out a pair of ‘A’ level ballparks. There’s more to see in Frederick, so I’ll start there on Saturday and then head to Harry Grove Stadium for a 6 PM contest against Lynchburg. Sunday’s game will be a half-hour away in Hagerstown and amazingly, these two close cities do not play in the same league. The Suns play in the South Atlantic League and I’ll be at Municipal Stadium for a 3 PM game against Kannapolis. It’s been a dicey few years in the Hub City as owner Bruce Quinn has been searching tirelessly for a new ballpark in many places, thus far to no avail. In the meantime, I’ll visit an active ballpark 85 years old. Looks like Summer has set in across the Mid-Atlantic and hopefully I miss any game delaying t-storms. Back next week with a wrap-up of stadium visits #159 and #160!
