Lockout leads Ravens to move training camp

The lockout hasn’t ended soon enough to save the Baltimore Ravens’ plans of holding training camp at McDaniel College, where the team has had camp every year since it first moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens in 1996.

Instead, the Ravens will have camp at their facility in Owings Mills.

“We’re disappointed we won’t be back at McDaniel and in Westminster this summer. We delayed the decision as long as we could,” Bob Eller, the Ravens’ vice president of operations, said in a statement. “There are logistics that needed to be addressed now, including McDaniel’s schedule, the hotel, the fields and other Ravens football functions. Right now, we don’t know dates for camp, and we’ve been forced to make other plans.”

Last year more than 110,000 fans attended Ravens training camp. But the Ravens’ facility in Owings Mills doesn’t have the space for fans, and so this year’s training camp will be closed to the public.

    very disappointing. McDaniel was a great place to watch training camp and interact with the players.

    At least there will be a couple of practices held at M&T Bank Stadium for the fans.

    And it begins. The people of the smaller venues. Hotels bars and restaurants etc. will be severely hurt w/o the presence of mini camps being held in their respected places. These are the people who support the teams as well!! Please get this worked out asap No one wants to hear another article like this!!

    Very disappointing, honestly. I have always loved going down to Westminster to watch training camp and interact with fellow Raven fans.

    The people that will actually get hurt in all of this, the businesses around the college. I have been there and there is nothing, I can’t imagine how much money training camp brought to the businesses and now will be gone. Kind of sad.
