The long-suffering fans of the Baltimore Orioles are comforted by the knowledge that their team plays ball in one of America’s great ballparks. Camden Yards (technically Oriole Park at Camden Yards) was the first of the big league “retro” ballparks that self-consciously emulated the great stadiums of the past. Baltimore itself is a sort of retro town, and it’s hard not to love the way the old-school B&O Warehouse dominates the sky behind right field. Tours can be arranged, but if you’re here during the season, catch a game, why don’t ya? Within the old Camden Station train depot is the Sports Legend Museum, chock full of historical sports paraphernalia that will get any fan of the (Baltimore!) Colts, Orioles, Ravens, etc. salivating. Nearby is the row house birthplace of the city’s most famous athlete resident: Babe Ruth. The residence is full of memorabilia commemorating “the Babe.” If you’re not tailgating a game, head on over here.
