Locust Point in Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
This is Banner Field
Home of pride, inspiration & freedom
You are standing less than a mile away from Ft. McHenry, where the citizens of Baltimore valiantly defended our freedom back in 1814, inspiring Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." To this day, that anthem is played before every sporting event in our great country, and that's exactly what inspired us to call this beautiful multipurpose facility "Banner Field."
