Yesterday, the Baltimore Ravens took to the field at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis to practice for the upcoming season. Owner, Steve Bisciotti, first brought the Ravens to town last year saying that Annapolis was the perfect spot for a practice. Bisciotti is a Severna Park resident and keeps his boat docked here in Annapolis.
Approximately 20,000 fans began to fill the parking lot of Navy-Marine Corps Stadium beginning at noon for tailgates. The gates to the stadium opened at 3:00pm and fans were treated to games, photo-ops, autographs, and much more. Practice began at 5:00pm and lasted approximately 2 hours after which the Super Bowl champs stuck around to pose for photos and give autographs to the fans who are confident they will see black and purple playing at MetLife Stadium in 181 days.
