Baltimore's Marching Ravens, a city sports tradition in some form for almost 60 years, began as a marching band for the Baltimore Colts. The band stayed together, even during the time when the city was without a football team. On game day, 225 members perform on the field, though the organization has 400 members, including support and medical teams.
