PressBox’s third annual Best Of is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best win, best save, best dynasty, best atmosphere and much more.

Best Save

There’s still work to be done, but October’s news that the city and The Stronach Group had reached an agreement to keep the Preakness at Pimlico long term was easily the single most stunning development of 2019 … in a very good way.

Most Baltimoreans had assumed a move to Laurel was inevitable. Instead, the facility is set to be re-imagined with a community event center and athletic fields on the infield. It could be one of the most remarkable developments in Baltimore sports history.
