My first game at Camden Yards
became my first rainout at Camden Yards.
The rain was definitely welcome as it had been a scorcher (97 degrees plus humidity) in Baltimore today. Along with the rain came some impressive wind and lightning.
Camden Yards is an excellent ballpark – definitely recommended. It’s clearly the father of the great new ballparks I’ve been to (Coors Field in Denver, Safeco Field in Seattle and formerly PacBell Park in San Francisco). Our seats were on the third base side letting us see the warehouse to right field and a bit of the Baltimore skyline to center field. The Orioles? Let’s say they’re still rebuilding…
One nice thing about Camden Yards is the waterfront area in general is a nicely rehabbed area. Not to mention hotels in close proximity to the stadium makes for it to be a real easy thing to do as a tourist staying the weekend.
I went to Camden Yards when on holiday, the atmosphere was amazing.
