Project Description

Cal Ripken Stadium

Davis, Bowen & Friedel provided structural engineering consulting services for Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, Maryland. The Maryland Stadium Authority worked with the City of Aberdeen, Harford County and private investors, including Baltimore baseball legends Cal and Billy Ripken on plans for this 6,300-seat minor league baseball stadium.

Visible from Interstate 95, the facility has 2,000 adjacent parking spaces and is located on 30 acres in Aberdeen, Maryland next to the planned Ripken Academy. The Academy includes six separate fields, each a replica of a past or present Major League Baseball park, i.e., Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Memorial Stadium and Ebbet’s Field. Ripken Stadium celebrated its official opening on June 18, 2002 and the inaugural season was a huge success with the Ironbirds playing to sold out crowds’ night after night.

Services included design and detailing of building foundations, field lighting, pole foundations and dugouts. Structural steel framing design and detailing were provided for the stadium and wood frame building design for the clubhouses and concession building.
