Did you know?
As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Oriole Park that we found especially interesting.
Facts Unique to
The Birdland Passport
Fans with game tickets are free to roam Eutaw Street, as well as the bleachers and Flag Court in search of batting practice home run balls and to enjoy any of the carnival-style attractions and concession areas, including Boog’s BBQ, located up and down the street. Access to the Orioles Legends Park is also available when the Eutaw Street gates open.
Fans strolling down Eutaw Street might look for any of the following: the brass baseballs embedded into the sidewalk marking the spot where home runs cleared the right field fence and landed on Eutaw Street; a plaque to mark the spot where Ken Griffey Jr. hit the Warehouse during the 1993 All-Star Home Run Hitting Contest; and, just outside the north end of Eutaw Street, are the four-foot aluminum monuments depicting retired Orioles uniform numbers and the Babe Ruth statue.
Our Reflections on the Game
Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
There was a very large brick building out in right field, a nice clock showing the time in center field and tree line. The stadium is only 2 blocks away from where Babe Ruth was born. The seats in the stadium were comfortable and clean. You appreciate a good seat when you are on stadium #29 and have spent over a hundred hours of watching baseball! James
I love the small size of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Felt like we were right in the action. Something about Camden Yards is just “A good ole American baseball stadium”. It’s in downtown Baltimore and has a great skyline. Good food and cold beer! Comfortable seats and really great fans! Our baseball caps are off to the Baltimore Orioles! In my top 10!Christie
