With 2015 getting closer to the finish line, PBR Maryland has developed the "Best Of" fan voting series, getting our viewers involved on their thoughts of the year. Already we have started that with our fan voting for the "Top Moment of 2015". Candidates include the Maryland state champions, MIAA champions, and the first Maryland HS player drafted in the 2015 MLB Amateur draft.  You can vote for that now by CLICKING HERE.
