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
Oriole Park


Flag Court

  • The Flag Court is located between the right field out-of-town scoreboard and Eutaw Street. Each American League team has a flag which is flown in order of the divisional standings. This is a popular spot for standing-room-only patrons to watch the game.

Stats

  • Capacity: 45,971 fans
  • Mascot: Oriole Bird
  • Stadium opened April 6, 1992

The Birdland Passport

The Birdland Passport program is designed to reward fans who attend games at Oriole Park and at the ballparks of the Orioles minor league affiliates. Register for your passport at Oriole Park at the Fan Assistance Center in the Warehouse or at one of the five Orioles-affiliated ballparks in the Mid-Atlantic (Norfolk, Bowie, Frederick, Delmarva, and Aberdeen). Fans who visit a certain number of ballparks are eligible to receive a limited-edition item. Fans who visit all six parks are entered to win a trip for two to Spring Training at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla.

Eutaw Street

Eutaw Street is the festive area located between the Warehouse and the ballpark. Eutaw Street is open daily; however, for 7:05 p.m. games, Eutaw Street closes at 4:00 p.m. to the general public. At 5:00 p.m., it re-opens, along with the entire ballpark, to fans holding tickets for that night’s game.

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

Christie’s Thoughts

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
