JULY 3

Sunday: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies, 1:35 p.m.

Perennial division winners, and postseason disappointments, the Braves end a three-game series against the Phillies. There's a free Turkey Hill Wiffle Ball Set for children 14 and under.

JULY 4

Monday: New York Mets at Washington Nationals, 1:05 p.m.

It might be too early in the day for fireworks, unless Carlos Beltran provides them. But you can catch them later at the Mall. Where better to spend the Fourth of July?

JULY 5

Tuesday: Williamsport Crosscutters at Aberdeen IronBirds, 7:05 p.m.

No way it could be a perfect week of baseball without a trip to Ripken Stadium, which has been sold out for every game the past three seasons. You might even catch a glimpse of Cal, or at least Bill.

JULY6

Wednesday: Hagers-town Suns at Delmarva Shorebirds, 7:05 p.m.

The Shorebirds celebrate their 10th anniversary in Salisbury. You will definitely catch a glimpse of the Rally Chicken.

JULY 7

Thursday: Boston Red Sox at Orioles, 7:05 p.m.

This is the first of a four-game series for the O's against baseball's defending champions.

JULY 8

Friday: Myrtle Beach Pelicans at Frederick Keys, 6:35 p.m.

There will be fireworks at Harry Grove Stadium. Pity if you didn't go one day last July when SpongeBob SquarePants came for lunch.

JULY 9

Saturday: New Britain Rock Cats at Bowie Baysox, 7:05 p.m.

It's Beach Night at Prince George's Stadium. The only thing missing is the beach.
