Lions At The Field

One of the largest colleges in Maryland is largely unknown outside of the Baltimore area. The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) has an annual enrollment of greater than 72,000 students. Created in the 1990s by a merger of Essex Community College, Dundalk Community College, and Catonsville Community, the new college kept each of those three main campuses, along with a bevy of extension campuses around the suburban Baltimore area. The three colleges shared a common board of trustees for years, but operated independently. Essex, Dundalk, and Catonsville have each kept their own distinct athletic identity.


CCBC Dundalk began in 1970.


The school mascot is the Lions and they play three sports total. Dundalk won the NJCAA Division II national championship for basketball in 2000. They are a member of Region XX of the National Junior College Athletic Association and the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference,


The Baseball Field is located next to the Dundalk Wellness & Athletics Center, which is pretty much the middle of the campus.


Food & Beverage 0

There are no food options at or near the baseball field. You are free to bring your own food.


Atmosphere 2

There is not much else in terms of atmosphere as it is a JUCO-level baseball game. The team does have a PA announcer and plays walkup music for players.


There are two small bleachers and two garden areas for seating around the main part of the field. There is a tiny chain link and no netting, so be aware of flying balls as this field is mainly unprotected.


Neighborhood 3

CCBC Dundalk is a suburban community college with its main neighbor being the Dundalk High School and Sollers Point Technical High School.


One of my favorite places to eat in the area is Squire's Italian Restaurant, which has a large menu of offerings. Their pizza is well-known in the area.


Fans 2

The attendees at most games are family members or other athletes. There may be a few local residents who attend the games. The fans are knowledgeable and friendly to visitors.


Access 4

CCBC Dundalk is located not far off of the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) via Merritt Boulevard. Please note that the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which was part of I-695, could make getting to the field from the south a little more difficult. You will need to use one of the Baltimore tunnels instead.


There is plenty of free parking on the campus. If classes are in session you may expect to park a bit further away from campus. Be careful parking right by the field, as the lot right by the field would seem to be a magnet for foul balls.


Return on Investment 5

The games are free to attend. That, along with the free parking, means that you can attend a good-level JUCO program at no cost.

.

Extras 2

If you go inside the Dundalk Wellness & Athletics Center, there are a few plaques around the that honor student-athletes from Dundalk's years past.


Walk around campus and see the solar panels that have been added to many parking areas on campus. All of the CCBC campuses have added these and expect to get more than a quarter of their electricity from solar. This 5.1-megawatt project is expected to generate 6.5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity each year and joins the 16.1-megawatt array at Mount St. Mary’s University in an effort by local colleges to expand solar usage.


Final Thoughts

The CCBC Dundalk Baseball Field is a basic pleasant baseball field located in a nice setting. Although nothing fancy, it is a nice little stop for a baseball fan traveling around the Baltimore area.
