Since arriving in 1989, the Frederick Keys have become a major part of Frederick County's sports history, as well as providing family-oriented entertainment during the spring and summer months.
The Keys, an advanced Class-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, is a member of the well-known Carolina League. A proving ground for future Major League Baseball hopefuls, the biggest thing the Keys' offers its fans is atmosphere, with fans much closer to the action than at some Major League ballparks.
Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium, the longtime home of the Keys, has much to offer, in addition to watching the Keys play baseball. Special events cover the entire home schedule each year. Fireworks displays throughout the home schedule have been one of the featured events following a game.
During each Keys home game, there are numerous giveaways in progress. Keyote, the Keys' official mascot, interacts with the fans, providing lots of fun for all ages.
The concession stands, along the concourse at Nymeo Field, offers just about everything to satisfy a hunger craving. Typical ballpark fare is offered, with many specialty teams.
Looking for souvenirs, the Keys offer plenty of those. The souvenir vendors offer a large inventory of baseball items.
Nymeo Field also plays host to numerous concert events throughout the season. The Keys don't have to be in town for the ballpark to be buzzing with activity.
