About Sponsor

Aberdeen IronBirds are the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. They play in Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium, located in Aberdeen, Maryland, which is in Harford County. Ironbirds are owned by retired Oriole Cal Ripken, Jr.. Ripken purchased the team, then known as the Utica Blue Sox, and moved them to his hometown of Aberdeen in time for the 2002 season.

On August 16, 2006, the IronBirds played host to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game. Ripken Stadium was also used for the Cal Ripken World Series in 2003 and 2004.  Subsequently forcing the team to go on extended road trips, 20 or more games, during the youth competition. Cal Ripken World Series moved across the street to Cal Sr.’s Yard in 2005. Our name name “IronBirds” was chosen for two reasons: Cal Ripken’s “Ironman” streak of 2,632 consecutive baseball games played and the team’s affiliation with the Orioles. Lastly, the team logo features a silver airplane marked with Ripken’s number 8, which also refers to the nearby Aberdeen Proving Ground U.S. Army installation.
