ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)– Taking their training on the road, the Baltimore Ravens landed in Annapolis on Sunday evening.

Alex DeMetrick reports on what has become a popular way for fans to show their support while the team gets in some practice.

Sunday evening brought thousands of Ravens fans to the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis. It was a first for both the team and the city as the Ravens staged an open practice.

“I’m a big fan of football. I’m going where the game is,” Sharae Sharp said.

The Ravens have done open practices in their home stadium and used to do them routinely at McDaniel College in Westminster.

“I went to McDaniel College and liked it better when it was there, but it’s still good to get out here,” Gerald Donahm, a
Ravens fan, said.

…Especially if here is where you live.

“I work just down the street. So I parked at the office and walked here,” Chris Pfaff said.

Going to where the fans are meant bringing the cheerleaders and the band, as well sling-shotting souvenir T-shirts into the crowd.

It was fun, it was free and it was football fever with all its symptoms.

“I’m a little nervous losing some key players, but I think they’ll pull together,” Pfaff said.

“I think they’ll be just as competitive as last year. Hopefully, they’ll go one past, one field goal kick further and have a chance in the Super Bowl,” Eric Day said.

The Ravens are staging one last open practice next Sunday evening at Stevenson College.
