Our summer promotion, “The Toyota Live Web King of Baltimore Sports” is now underway, as I’m sure you heard on WNST yesterday.
We’ll be releasing more information daily regarding The King, which will begin in earnest on Monday and go daily through our 10th Anniversary celebration, which will be held at Sports Legends Museum on Aug. 8.
We are also celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Baltimore Colts first team championship of the modern era and the 25th Anniversary of the most recent Baltimore Orioles world championship. We are planning on having a grand gala on Aug. 8th so mark your calendar.
The 32-man brackets for the contest will be unveiled on Tuesday night at the Angle Inn in Dundalk.
Here is your food for thought for the day: below is the list of all of the candidates we could cull for the final list of 32.
Tomorrow, we’ll release the 28 “first-ballot” entries. Next week, you can vote for the final four “play-in” contestants in right here at WNST.net.
We figure that there have been about 5,000 different people who’ve worn the name “BALTIMORE” on the crests of their jerseys over the past 50 years in Baltimore.
These are the best of the best…
Enjoy the names and your memories of these legendary Baltimore athletes.
And may the “REAL” King win…
