Baltimore is a city steeped in sports history. It’s the birthplace of baseball legend Babe Ruth, and home to the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards. Whatever your sporting preference, whether it be all-American football or all-attitude roller derby, Baltimore has something to satisfy your appetite (let’s not forget about those tasty stadium hot dogs, shall we?)

Baltimore Ravens: Known as “The Flock,” Baltimore Ravens fans have been patiently waiting for another championship win since their team last won the Super Bowl in 2001. But that doesn’t stop them from faithfully tailgating outside M&T Bank Stadium at Camden Yards on crisp Sunday afternoons each fall. Participate in Purple Fridays or cheer on fan-favorite Ray Lewis. Tickets to see this AFC North team range in price from $60 to $355.

Baltimore Orioles: When the St. Louis Browns brought baseball to Baltimore in 1953, Birdland was born. The team was renamed “The Orioles” the following year, and through the decades has boasted big name players such as Cal Ripken Jr. and Brooks Robinson. Today, this American League team is quite at home at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, “the ballpark that changed baseball forever.” Single game tickets range from $10 to $200.

Baltimore Blast: Soccer may not be America’s favorite pastime, but the Baltimore Blast has been drawing crowds to 1st Mariner Arena for decades. A member of the Major Indoor Soccer League, the Blast most recently won the NISL championship in 2009. The team’s roster includes several Maryland natives, including goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald and defenders Pat Healey, Mike Lookingland and Mike Deasel. Tickets range in price from $16 to $22.

Charm City Roller Girls: Those looking for a less traditional Baltimore sports experience need look no further than the Charm City Roller Girls. It’s Baltimore’s only all girl roller derby league, and features four intraleague teams—The Mobtown Mods, The Junkyard Dolls, The Night Terrors and Speed Regime—and two interleague teams—The Charm City All Stars and Female Trouble. Derby girls each have a unique nickname characteristic of the extreme sport, such as “I.M. Pain” and “Rosie the Rioter.” You can catch bouts at Du Burns Arena in Canton, but they often sell out so be sure to buy a ticket in advance. General admission $12 in advance ($15 at the door), Children $5, VIP $25.

Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards: Located in historic Camden Station, The Sports Legends Museum shares space with the Babe Ruth Museum, and both are committed to preserving the legacy of Baltimore sports. It houses the Orioles Hall of Fame and features memorabilia from the Baltimore Ravens, University of Maryland Terrapins and legends such as Johnny Unitas and, of course, the Great Bambino himself. To explore everything the museums have to offer, purchase a combo ticket: Adults $12, Seniors $8, Children (3-12) $5. Tickets to the individual museums are also available.
