Camden Yards Apr 20, 2014
A great baseball stadium which has become the pride of Baltimore since its opening in 1992, spawning a new stadium boom in several other cities hosting major league teams. Camden Yards is easily accessible from Interstate 95, the major east coast highway, though parking can be pricey. We used the parking garage at the next door Baltimore Hilton which cost $28.

The Inner Harbor with all of its restaurants and activities is a short walk away, allowing for a full day before or after a game. Along Eutaw Street, which becomes a pedestrian street inside the stadium complex, are several pubs and stores selling sports memorabilia and merchandise that have been retrofitted inside an old warehouse.

We attended an afternoon game which pitted the Baltimore Orioles against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was surprisingly cold, especially inside the concourse, but April is a finicky month. During most of the baseball season Baltimore is warm and humid, so dress appropriately. And watch out for the foul balls that come flying into the stands!
Play ball!

This was where my baseball quest started back in 2008. After seeing these photos, I need to make a return trip there someday.

Don't forget it is also a short walk to Federal Hill...which has great pubs & restaurants + FREE parking! I went in with five buddies for a pair of season tickets the first two years (92-93)...so basically a game every two weeks - it was heaven.

The first of retro ballparks May 16, 2008
"If you built it, they will come!" It was more like, if you built it, they will copy.

When Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened in 1992, it started a new wave of retro-style ballparks in Major League Baseball. Other teams started to build ballparks of the same style, as one by one, the cookie cutter stadiums (often shared by baseball and football teams) were falling by the wayside. While they are great to watch a ballgame, they will never compare to the real thing, like Fenway Park in Boston.

Nonetheless, Camden Yards is a great place to watch a ball game and the prices are not too bad, for great views. Also, not too hard to get a ticket, but that's because the team isn't very good. The downside is being in the concourse, you are not able to see the game.

Outside, there is the Babe Ruth Museum and the Sports Legends Museum. If you plan to do this before the game, come at least 3 hours before the game. There is a lot to see in the Sports Legends Museum, not only covering the Orioles, but other Maryland sports as well.
