Ravens Excited For Annapolis Practice

The Under Armour Performance Center is nice, but the Ravens still like to get away every once in a while.

For the second straight year, the Ravens will hold a practice at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The practice begins Sunday at 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

"It will be exciting. I think our guys are really looking forward to it," Head Coach John Harbaugh said.

"I'm expecting a full stadium down there in Annapolis. The Naval Academy has just been tremendous hosts. We love going down there. We respect everything that the Naval Academy stands for. They have been great to us. We can't wait."

Last year's event was attended by more than 20,000 fans, and the defending Super Bowl champions are hoping for an even bigger turnout this year.

It's in Owner Steve Bisciotti's backyard, as he grew up in Severna Park, Md., and still has a residence nearby.

Navy will feature interactive fan events, including player autograph signings for children, fun-filled activities designed specifically for youth such as a scavenger hunt, and cheerleader/mascot meet-and-greets.

For the players, it's a chance for them to perform in front of more fans and interact with them afterwards. It's also a break from the routine of camp at the training facility.

"It's something different," cornerback Corey Graham said. "[There's] a big crowd out there. We'll get a chance to play in front of a lot of people [in] a different atmosphere. You always want to get away and do something different, so it'll be exciting for us to get out there."

Gates open at 3:30 p.m., and fans attending can get * *info here.
