BALTIMORE, Md. - On Saturday, Stevenson University's Wild Stang was one of a handful of Baltimore-area mascots, and the only one from the area's four NCAA Division III schools, who participated in "Meet the Mascots" at the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards.
The family-oriented event featured a "behind the mask" discussion from popular local mascots, including Poe (Baltimore Ravens), the Oriole Bird (Baltimore Orioles) and Testudo (University of Maryland).
The program highlighted the art of being a mascot along with the rewards and hazards of the job as well as the extensive training involved.
Following the program, fans had a chance to meet and take photos with the mascots which also included Doc the Tiger (Towson), Louie from Bowie (Bowie BaySox), True Grit (UMBC Retriever), and The Eagle (Coppin State).
The program was free with the price of admission to Sports Legends Museum which offers an interactive "Kids Discovery Zone" where youth can try on sports uniforms from various Maryland teams including the Baltimore Ravens, Maryland Terrapins, Baltimore Orioles and much more.
Located adjacent to the main gate of Oriole Park, Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards consists of 22,000-square feet of artifacts and interactive exhibits profiling Maryland sports history, while celebrating and preserving the historic legacy of Baltimore-born Babe Ruth, the Baltimore Orioles and Colts and Baltimore Ravens, as well as local and regional sports at the amateur, collegiate and various professional levels.
The Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation owns and operates both Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards and the Babe Ruth Birthplace.
