Oriole Park at Camden Yards is more than a place for baseball, the downtown Baltimore attraction is a destination for those who love the sport and enjoy American nostalgia.
The Baltimore Orioles play in Major League Baseball’s American League East division and are one of the League’s eight charter teams playing since 1901. The Orioles’ regularly host other division rivals like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The Orioles have won three World Series championships (1966, 1970, 1983).
Known widely as Camden Yards or referred to as simply Oriole Park, the field and surrounding grounds are located a few blocks from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The park became the official home of the Orioles on April 6, 1992. The first of a movement of retro baseball stadiums to be constructed in the U.S. in the 1990s and early 2000s, Camden Yards can host 45,971 fans with views of the game from standing room only spots to seats in luxury suites. Directly between the stadium and the refabricated B&O railway warehouse next door lies Eutaw Street, home to several shops and restaurants. Otherwise open for pedestrian traffic, Eutaw Street is open only for ticket holders on game day. Along Eutaw Street the Orioles organization has placed baseball-shaped bronze plaques on and around the street to mark the spot of home run shots.
