As part of their work at Oriole Park, the RCG&A team excavated the site of baseball great Babe Ruth’s boyhood home. During the 1990 project, the archeology team hosted an open house to allow the community to view the excavation site. The event drew thousands of spectators, setting a record for most people ever to visit an archaeological dig in Maryland.
While many people remember Babe Ruth as a player for the Boston Red Sox, he signed his first professional baseball contract with the Baltimore Orioles on February 14, 1914. A few months later, on July 11th, Babe Ruth was traded to the Boston Red Sox, where he finished his first professional season as the team’s pitcher. RCG&A hosted an open house block party at the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore during the Southern Gas Association conference. Indian dancers from multiple tribes under the direction of Mark Tayac of The Piscataway Indian Nation educated and entertained the 200+ guests about Native American traditions and ceremonial dances.
