Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the beautiful baseball-only facility in downtown Baltimore, became the official home of the Baltimore Orioles on April 6, 1992. The construction of the park was completed in essentially 33 months from the time they began razing the previous structures on the 85-acre parcel, which began June 28, 1989, in the area known as Camden Yards, the one-time railroad center.
It is only two blocks from the birthplace of baseball's most legendary hero, George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Ruth's father operated Ruth's Cafe on the ground floor of the family residence located at Conway Street and Little Paca, now center field at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The ballpark seats 48,876 (including standing room) and the project cost was approximately $110 million. (This photo was taken from my hotel room.) (July 31, 2006)
