When the Baltimore Ravens lose, the Baltimore Sports Club goes from “The Baltimore Sportsman’s Club” to “The Ravens Club”
Baltimore Ravens fans are not the only ones who are excited for the upcoming season.
According to The Sport, the city’s sportsmen’s club, the Ravens, will play its final home game at Gillette Stadium.
In order to make that happen, the team’s owner, Dan Gilbert, will have to sell the club.
That would make for an interesting end to an organization that has become one of the most successful franchises in the history of the sport.
According a Sports Illustrated article, the NFL franchise currently sits at 678 players, a drop from the team numbers of the early 2000s.
The Baltimore Sportsmen’s Club, a 501c3, will no longer exist after the 2018 season.
That’s a big deal, because the organization was created in 2002 to help bring the Ravens to the big leagues.
The club was founded by former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who would later become the team president.
Lewis is now a member of the Arizona Cardinals, but his involvement with the Baltimore sportsmen club goes back a long way.
Lewis played for the Ravens during the 1960s and 70s.
He also played for his former team, the Atlanta Braves, which played in the city from 1966 to 1972.
The Braves lost to the New York Giants in the 1964 World Series.
The Orioles are currently without a winning season since 2004.
And when the Baltimore Orioles were the New England Patriots, Lewis also played in that franchise.
It was not until 2005, when the Patriots were purchased by the Boston Celtics, that Lewis’ old team began a streak of winning the NFL title each season.
