Best of 2021

2021 marks PressBox’s fifth annual Best Of edition celebrating the top people, performances and moments of the year.

Best Good Citizens

Area sports franchises stepped up big time throughout the year to help the fight against COVID-19.

M&T Bank Stadium delivered nearly 250,000 doses as a mass vaccination site supported by the Ravens. The Orioles offered vaccines during games at Camden Yards and even offered free tickets to incentivize fans to get their vaccines. Ripken Stadium, Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs’ ballpark were also mass vaccination sites.

It was truly an “all arms on deck” approach from the area’s sports teams.
