"Take Me Out To a Ball Game"

Ridgely’s Delight is a small residential neighborhood in Baltimore. Located within walking distance of the Inner Harbor, it is popular among those who are looking for a more affordable neighborhood that is still near the glitz and glamor of the touristy Inner Harbor.
Ridgely’s Delight’s main claim to fame is the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum. The men and women who come from all over the country to visit this shrine to America’s most famous baseball star have led to the development of a baseball theme subculture in the immediate area. There is everything from a sports themed bookstore to the Camden Pub, where patrons can enjoy a light meal and beer while watching various games played out on TV.
Residents have benefited from this influx of tourist dollars in several ways. For instance, a local MARC train station brings tourists in, but it also give residents an easy way to get to jobs as far away as Washington DC. There are also many opportunities for those who own their own homes to rent out parking spaces to baseball fans coming ot see games at the nearby Camden Yards, or other events at the M & T Bank Stadium.
Pros
  • baseball, baseball, baseball
Cons
