The Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum Annual Yard Sale will be Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon — or when the items sell out — in the rear courtyard at 216 Emory St. The mementos, priced at $5 to $500, include exhibit graphics, vintage baseball cards, autographed baseballs and photographs, commemorative footballs, bobblehead dolls of local sports stars, signed posters and numbered lithograph prints of original sports art signed by the artists. The items are not part of the museum's collection, but rather items accumulated by or for the organization as auction items or giveaways, or items donated or bequeathed to the museum, or items that are no longer on display. Parking will be available on the street and in the museum lot in the 600 block of West Pratt Street next to the Camden Pub. All sales support the museum.

Maryland Crab Bowl: After three years at McDaniel College in Westminster, the all-star game will move to Bowie State for Sunday's ninth annual edition. Kickoff is at 1:30 p.m. The game was never intended to stay in the Baltimore area, said Tony Kennedy, director of the Crab Bowl. "As the years go by, we try to split it between the Baltimore and the Washington area as much as we can," Kennedy said. "We've had it in the Baltimore region a lot, so it was time to move it back to the D.C. region. We thought we had to do that because … we've never gone more than three years in one area." Team Baltimore, which began the first of three practices Monday night, defeated Team Washington, 31-28, last year for its first win since 2012. Baltimore has never won back-to-back, and Washington leads the series 5-3. Go to baltimoresun.com/varsityletters for Maryland's roster.
