It was a disappointing start to Ravens training camp, and it had nothing to do with the team itself. With all the excitement surrounding the team, one had to wonder: Where were the fans?
The Ravens announced that 3,008 attended the morning practice, but it seemed less than that. The stands at the McDaniel College stadium weren't full, and there were plenty of empty spots on the grass hill.
The crowd topped last year's first-day total of 2,530, but many expected more. Maybe fans were still traveling home from Cooperstown, N.Y., where Cal Ripken Jr. was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
