Whether you're a channel-surfing couch potato or a balls-to-the-wall weekend warrior, Baltimore, Maryland is the sportsman or sportswoman's paradise. For the "I'd rather watch" set, the Baltimore Ravens are perennial powerhouses and the Orioles have gone from upstarts to established contenders, making Baltimore the City that Reads the Box Scores with a big fat smile on our melons. If you're the sort who'd rather play, well you're still in luck. Baltimore is home to thriving sports leagues for children of all ages and, for the outdoor types, Maryland has over 96,000 acres of state parks encompassing mountains, forests, rivers, the bay, and the ocean. To put that in perspective, that's big enough to hold 96,000 single acre yards! Maryland may be America in Miniature, but when it comes to sports and rec, we take it to the max.
