Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Capacity: 45,480 Opened: 1992
Oriole Park at Camden Yards set off the retro-stadium craze. Come see the Orioles play in the original!
What makes this stadium unique?
Oriole Park at Camden Yards stands two blocks away from baseball legend George Herman “Babe” Ruth’s birthplace, which is now a museum. Outside the stadium is a statue of Babe Ruth and in the same courtyard, you will find tributes to former Orioles, whose jersey numbers are now retired. The ballpark was the first stadium to spark the “retro” stadium craze and still remains one of the most popular. The road next to the stadium, Eutaw Street, is lined with shops, restaurants, and bronzed baseballs depicting where home runs have fallen. This street becomes a block party and is closed to vehicular traffic on game days. There is standing room only available in the Eutaw Street Reserve on sold-out game days. Be sure to look for the two orange seats commemorating Cal Ripkin’s 278th home run (left field bleachers) and Eddie Murray’s 500th home run (right center bleachers). Also notice the “The” in The Baltimore Sun on the scoreboard. The “H” lights up for every hit and the “E” lights up for every error. Handy for those keeping score!
