Babe Ruth Museum scores with benefit


More than 200 guests crowded into the screening room of the ESPNZone at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the coming baseball season and to raise money for the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum's planned expansion into historic Camden Station at Oriole Park.

"Opening Night" featured a sumptuous buffet created by ESPNZone chefs; live and silent auctions of baseball memorabilia and a "Seinfeld" script signed by the cast; an autograph session with Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick and manager Ray Miller; a Q&A; session with Miller and the team's general manager, Frank Wren; and unlimited tries for that perfect score on ESPNZone's electronic game machines.

Those in attendance included Jill McGovern, chairwoman of the museum's board of directors; attorney Michael Hodes, the event's chairman; Michael Styer, a museum board member and director of the Maryland Film Office; Carroll Armstrong, president and CEO of the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association; attorney Henry Louis and his wife, Phyllis; and Baltimore County Executive Dutch Ruppersberger.
