On a warm summer evening there are few places on the east coast as relaxing and enjoyable as Oriole Park at Camden Yards (OPACY). Home of the Baltimore Orioles since 1992, it is widely regarded by many as one of the crown jewels of modern stadiums.
While the O's struggled through the first decade of the 2000's, attendance sagged and fan morale reached an all time low. Fans of the Yankees, Red Sox and Phillies routinely invaded the yard, turning it into their own private vacation destination. While some diehard supporters wont admit it, people stopped going to the Yankees games in particular, just because those damn Yankee fans were so annoying. It had become easier to just avoid those match-ups all together.
Last season, OPACY experienced a renaissance on its 20th anniversary. The O's won 92 games, the AL wild-card, hosted two memorable playoff games, honored their greatest legends and brought the baseball team back to relevance in a time when the Ravens had taken a firm grasp of many peoples hearts. After years of finishing in 4th or 5th place in the mighty AL East, the famous Orioles magic had returned.
Now that there is a competitive baseball team back in Baltimore, its important to know the best things to do while attending an O's game at OPACY.
