Good morning, Baltimore!

Meredith Flynn —  June 9, 2014

The city has welcomed Southern Baptists with beautiful harbor views, mild temps, and baseball – the Orioles are hosting two “Baptist nights” at Camden Yards.

We’ve also learned a few things about the city, like:

– Baltimore is the birthplace of Babe Ruth. The slugger never played here, but he’s memorialized at the ballpark.

– Crab cakes come fried or broiled. (You can probably guess which is better.)

– Old Bay seasoning can be used to flavor coffee.

Check out these photos (that last one is an official Old Bay mocha), and come back throughout the day for more from Baltimore. The SBC Pastors’ Conference continues today with messages from Eric Mason, Rick Warren, Francis Chan, and more. Go to to listen live.
