Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Baltimore Orioles

About Stadium

Commonly referred to as Camden Yards or simply, Oriole Park, it’s a ballpark located in downtown Baltimore, maryland and serves as the home field for Major League Baseball’s Baltimore Orioles.

Often considered to be the first retro-style ballpark of the modern era, Oriole Park at Camden Yards has inspired a number of other old-style parks since its construction.

The field is tucked up against an old B&O Warehouse which towers over the right field area and is now filled with offices and private club spaces.
