BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The big event of Ravens training camp was held Saturday night: M&T Bank Stadium practice!

You could say fans are excited to watch the Ravens light up the stadium again. When 37,00 free passes for the stadium practice were made available two weeks ago, every single pass was claimed within 24 hours.

WJZ’s Mark Viviano was on the scene to capture the event.

It was the first time on the field for some, like rookie defensive back Brandon Stephens. The Ravens also inked a deal Saturday night with All-Star Justin Houston.

It wasn’t any old practice. Players tossed prizes to the stands and cornerback Marlon Humphrey took his time throwing out signed footballs to the crowd. Running back J.K. Dobbins tossed his gloves to some lucky fans.

Among the highlights: a long pass to rookie wide receiver Rashad Bateman. The first-round draft pick felt the energy of his first stadium experience in Baltimore.

“I feel like I played a game. Back in college, we didn’t have fans either so being able to see that especially being in Baltimore it felt special,” said Bateman. “Everyone has welcomed me with open arms so I’m taking it all in and having fun. Today was special, that’s for sure.”

And the stadium has something for everyone. Kids were jumping out of their seats to meet Poe! The night closed out with a post-practice laser light show and fireworks over the stadium.
