Regency Furniture Stadium 

Fans are encouraged to be crabby when they attend Southern Maryland Blue Crabs games at the 4,200-seat Regency Furniture Stadium near La Plata, MD. This is one of the newest minor league stadiums in America, having hosted its first regular season game in 2008. Regency Furniture Stadium has an interesting architecture with sloping red roofs and a left field wall that bears a door to allow players to enter the field from the locker room, modeled after the Green Monster at Fenway Park. In keeping with the crabby theme, concession stands have items like fried rockfish, crab cakes and crab-filled soft pretzels.
