Oriole Park Extras
Three "Don't Miss It"s at Camden Yards
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; this is where you get all of your pre-game entertainment in.
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.
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.
