  • MINOR DETOUR

    MINOR DETOUR
    Among the joys of watching minor-league baseball in Maryland is that four of the Orioles’ minor-league teams—the Frederick Keys, the Delmarva Shorebirds (Salisbury), the Bowie Baysox, and the Aberdeen Ironbirds—play in such close proximity to each other and the big-league club. In the press box at a recent Delmarva Shorebirds game, the visiting team’s broadcaster loudly expressed envy over the relative closeness of the Orioles’ minor-league affiliates to the parent club. There’s also an intimacy associated with minor-league baseball that is absent at big-league games; whether it’s the atmosphere and more affordable cost of tickets that create an opportunity for families to enjoy each other’s company or the up and close and personal interaction with the ballplayers, minor-league baseball is more laid-back and casual than going to the big-league games. Plus, they’re readily accessible at the spur of the moment. We made early-season excursions to three of the four local parks—the Aberdeen Ironbirds’ season starts in mid-June—to let you know what’s on deck for 2014.
