Crabby Stadium Earns Top Recognition in National Ranking

Monday, June 20, 2011

According to Livability.com, our Southern Maryland Blue Crabs play at one of the top minor league stadiums in the nation (and we couldn’t agree more!).  The list puts Regency Furniture Stadium at number three on the list.  The top ten ranking includes fields that exude “charm and magnetism” and that attract both “baseball enthusiasts and curiosity seekers.”  Livability describes our stadium as follows:

“Fans are encouraged to be crabby when they attend Southern Maryland Blue Crabs games at the 4,200-seat Regency Furniture Stadium outside La Plata, MD. The stadium, which hosted its first regular season game in 2008, has unique architecture with sloping red roofs and a left field wall that bears a door to allow players to enter the field from the locker room, modeled after the Green Monster at Fenway Park. In keeping with the crabby theme, concession stands have items like fried rockfish, crab cakes and crab-filled soft pretzels.”

Is anyone else suddenly very hungry?  Regency Furniture Stadium was also named the 2010 Digitalballparks.com Ballpark of the Year, highlighting the stadium’s “Southern Maryland tobacco barn” style architecture, delicious food options, exceptional picnic areas, and unique bumper boats.

Be sure to take advantage of this standout stadium located in our backyard…perfect for a crabby family outing, or guys/gals night out!
