Mary­land Sci­ence Cen­ter

Where Baltimore - - Where Calendar -

When it opened in 1976, this smart play­ground (page 19) was a pi­o­neer in the re­vi­tal­iza­tion of the now-bustling In­ner Har­bor. Since then, it’s been get­ting kids ex­cited about sci­ence through in­ter­ac­tive ex­hibits like a walk-in beat­ing heart, ready-to-wear space suits and di­nosaur fos­sil digs (above). The an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion, “40 Sum­mers of Sci­ence,” goes through Sept. 5 with Bub­ble Days, Pa­tio Par­ties and more. See md­

When it opened in 1992, Ori­ole Park at Cam­den Yards set a new stan­dard for ur­ban, base­ball-only sta­di­ums, and it re­mains one of the ma­jors’ most beloved fields. Here are nine in­nings of tips to make your visit a home run. FIRST Be sure to get to your seats in time for the na­tional an­them. Fans yell “O!” as the per­former sings, “O say does that star-span­gled ban­ner yet wave.” The shout- out is a trib­ute to both the team and the lyrics that were penned in Bal­ti­more’s har­bor by Fran­cis Scott Key. SEC­OND A relic from the site’s rail-yard days, the circa 1900 B&O Ware­house is the sta­dium’s sig­na­ture back­drop. Stroll inside to sam­ple a base­ballthemed beer (Wild Pitch Wheat, Rain De­lay IPA) at Dempsey’s, named for an Ori­oles catcher, or shop for gear at the team store. THIRD Walk along Eutaw Street, be­tween the ware­house and the sta­dium, and look down at the plaques show­ing where homers landed. In a game, no one’s ever hit the ware­house— 432 feet from home plate down the right field line. FOURTH Grab a bite at Boog’s BBQ, op­er­ated by leg­endary first base­man Boog Pow­ell. Pit beef, a Bal­ti­more spe­cialty, is the fo­cus, and as the lines prove, Boog does it right. You might even spot the big man him­self be­hind the counter or work­ing the crowd. FIFTH Stand in the Flag Court, and watch the game from above the right field score­board. Flags for each Amer­i­can League team are flown in or­der of the cur­rent di­vi­sional stand­ings. SIXTH If the chil­dren are get­ting antsy, take them to the Kids’ Cor­ner, fea­tur­ing a moon bounce, speed pitch and bat­ting cage. Af­ter Sun­day games, kids un­der 14 can run the bases. SEV­ENTH Re­turn to your seats for a sing-along version of “Thank God I’m a Coun­try Boy.” The team started play­ing the John Den­ver tune in the 1970s, and it’s been a sev­enth-in­ning sta­ple ever since. EIGHTH As­cend to the Roof Deck, over­look­ing cen­ter field. You need a ticket to sit in one of the seats, but anyone is wel­come to stand and watch the game on the field or on one of the full-ser­vice bar’s TVs. NINTH When the game’s tight, of­ten there’s ac­tion in the bullpens, where the relief pitch­ers warm up. Along the rail­ing above them, fans line up for great views of 90-mileper-hour fast­balls that pop into the catcher’s glove. Nearby, Ori­oles Leg­ends Park dis­plays stat­ues of six greats, in­clud­ing Cal Rip­ken Jr. and Frank Robin­son. EX­TRA IN­NINGS At Pick­les Pub, in the shadow of the sta­dium, sa­vor a beer (or two) and cel­e­brate a win, or drown your sor­rows and pro­claim, “We’ll get ‘em to­mor­row!”

PAT­TER­SON PARK Bal­ti­more’s “best back­yard” of­fers play­grounds, foun­tains and the Audubon Cen­ter. From the top of the 1891 Vic­to­rian Pagoda (left), views ex­tend to down­town and the har­bor. At the boat lake, glimpse great blue herons and other wildlife.
