Three Extra Camden Yards Tips For Fans
Here are a few extra Camden Yards tips for the traveling fan…
Extra Camden Yards Tips, #1: Eutaw Street. Just because it isn’t on your list to get a barbecued turkey sandwich from Boog’s doesn’t mean you should miss Eutaw Street. Eutaw is the actual street name, but in the ballpark it is sandwiched between the Warehouse and the baseball field.
This is where the bulk of the non-ballgame attractions are; not just getting your picture taken with Boog Powell, but also snagging long balls hit in batting practice, visiting the team store, and reading the round plaques where all of the home runs landed on Eutaw.
I highly recommend entering the ballpark at one of the Eutaw Street gates in fact (except on giveaway nights); this is where you get all of your pre-game entertainment in.
Extra Camden Yards Tips, #2: The Memorial Stadium Dedication. Memorial Stadium was the home of the Orioles for 37 years; its replacing even with the magnificent Camden Yards still causes heavy hearts in older O’s fans.
One of the striking visual features of the Memorial Stadium façade was its dedication to the fallen soldiers in the World Wars in its unusual lettering. Recently the letters in the last sentence of this dedication—“Time will not dim the glory of their deeds”—were placed near Gate C at the southern end of the warehouse. If you’re an older fan, it will bring back memories.
Extra Camden Yards Tips, #3: Retired Numbers. The retired number statues are in the plaza at the north warehouse entrance, and the nice thing about it is that there aren’t likely to be many additions to them soon.
There are six of them, dedicated to classic Orioles like manager Earl Weaver, pitching great Jim Palmer, and of course, consecutive games record holder Cal Ripken Jr. Most teams have their retired numbers on display somewhere, but not many have actual statues of the numbers. Worth a look.
That’s how much it cost a family of four to see a game at Camden Yards in 2016, according to the MLB Fan Cost Index.
Are you planning a visit to Camden Yards? Do you want to slash that ridiculous total, AND find a great seat, parking spot, and a tasty sandwich at the game?
