Likewise, our appreciation goes out to those individuals who make the baseball facilities at Arundel HS, McCurdy Field, Joe Cannon Stadium, and Shipley Field at the University of Maryland available to us. A special thank you to the folks at Ripken Stadium for their cooperation and assistance in making our State Finals the special experience that it is.
