McDaniel College is a private four-year liberal arts college in Westminster, Maryland. It was established in 1867 and until 2002 was known as Western Maryland College. The name of the college did not reflect the geographic placement of the school as it is not located in the western part of the state. Instead it was named for the Western Maryland Railroad, which it shared some common board members.
The University of Alabama in Huntsville has managed to make a very basic, although pretty, setting into one of the better soccer fields in the area. If in the area, make sure to stop in and see if you can catch a match.
Soccer matches in a stadium designed for baseball seems like it could be full of issues. But Penn FC and FNB Field seem to work very well together. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the soccer team in terms of their own stadium, but the current setup works quite well.
The Philadelphia Phillies are the oldest continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional American sports. This also means that the Phillies have lost more games in history than any other team in Major League Baseball history. That sounds quite damning, but having been a continuous team since 1883 means there will be quite a few losses, as well as some wins, in those years.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened in 1992 and has been considered one of the best Major League Baseball stadiums in the league. Prior to its opening the landscape of professional baseball was littered with boring, multipurpose bowl stadiums. Now nearly every team has a great baseball stadium. Luckily Oriole Park has kept up with the experiences. Out were lackluster parks and in were fan friendly stadiums that were designed for the optimum fan experience. If Baltimore had built a standard, boring facility, baseball may not look and feel the way it does now.
