The Orioles winter caravan tour will visit Ripken Stadium on Thursday for a Hot Stove Dinner including manager Buck Showalter and closer Jim Johnson.
Opening Day may still be about three months away. And spring training is still a month off. But Orioles fans can spend Thursday evening talking baseball with manager Buck Showalter and closer Jim Johnson at a "Hot Stove Dinner" at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. The inaugural dinner will run from 6 to 9 p.m., featuring a Q&A session with the skipper and the reliever, led by MASNsports.com reporter and former IronBirds broadcaster Steve Melewski.

Harford Family House holds its annual home run derby fundraiser at Ripken Stadium.
Hitting a home run at Ripken Stadium can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Winning a car is even more uncommon. Participants in next month's Home Runs For The Homeless event will have a chance to do both. The event, which benefits the Harford Family House, will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 14. Teams of four will swing for the fences, and for targets around the field. Entry is $250 per player, or $1,000 for a team. A 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport 4x4—which is valued at $37,000—from Jones Junction will go to a participant who hits a specific target on the field. Teams will be scored on distance of their combined hits. The winning team will receive a trophy. The event will be capped by an awards celebration—which is free to …

The Aberdeen IronBirds opened the home half of 2012 Wednesday at Ripken Stadium.
The IronBirds rallied to tie Wednesday's home opener before Hudson Valley pulled away in the ninth for a 5-3 win at Ripken Stadium. See the IronBirds website for a complete play-by-play and a box score. Renegades righty Taylor Guerrieri scattered two hits while striking out six in five innings. "We faced a pretty good pitcher," manager Gary Allenson said. "He had four major league pitches: a live fastball, good breaking ball, and a really good change-up. He mixed it up." Once he departed, though, the IronBirds came back to life. Allenson praised his ballplayers for tying the game up with a three-run, sixth-inning rally. He noted a strong fan base in his first game with the IronBirds, but said he didn't think the players were overwhelmed by…
Havre de Grace Patch readers met a challenge on Facebook recently.
The Aberdeen IronBirds start their 11th season at Ripken Stadium tonight. The story of the IronBirds' birth is a long one. In short: a hometown hero brought the team here. Cal Ripken, of course, played in 2,632 straight games amid a Hall of Fame career with the Orioles. He retired in 2001, and in 2002, purchased a minor league team, moved them to Aberdeen and the IronBirds were born. Ripken was born in Havre de Grace and grew up in Aberdeen. About a month ago, with opening night in my sights, I set out a challenge to our Facebook fans: Fun challenge, Facebook pals: Let's get to 2,632 "likes" (the number of consecutive games Cal Ripken played before taking a day off) before the Aberdeen IronBirds home opener on June 20. Tell a friend. Only …
