Cheer on the Orioles at Camden Yards

watching a baseball game

Just an 18-minute drive from our Jessup apartments is the ballpark that forever changed baseball.

We are talking about Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and it has been the home of the Orioles since 1992. 

History

Construction began in 1989. When the stadium opened three years later, it was new but had that old-time ballpark feeling. Its architecture blends the city’s urban features with the charm of the ballparks built in the early 20th century. Visitors find an arched brick facade, natural grass turf, and an asymmetrical playing field.

Camden Yards forever changed how other cities construct new stadiums. Instead of being built next to empty parking lots, they’re now found in historic neighborhoods where they play key roles in revitalizing urban America. 

There is much to see and do, including:

Autographs 

Before every Monday and Thursday home game, former Orioles players sign autographs on Eutaw Street. Current coaches and players may sign from the field from the time the gates open until 45 minutes before the first pitch. 

Boog’s BBQ 

Found behind the center field bleachers, Boog’s serves the best barbecue in Maryland. Boog Powell, the Orioles former All-Star first basemen, is often at the restaurant signing autographs and dishing up food. 

Dempsey’s Brew Pub & Restaurant 

Open on both game and non-game days, Dempsey’s is named for Orioles Hall of Fame catcher, Rick Dempsey. The menu features upscale American fare which can be enjoyed with the specialty beers brewed on-site.

Ballpark Tours 

See Camden Yards from a whole new perspective. Tours are provided almost daily between mid-February and mid-December, and they’re a fun way to learn about the stadium’s history. The guide will also offer a look at places typically off-limits to the public. 

Oriole Park at Camden Yards is just one of the premier attractions near our apartments in Jessup, Maryland. To call our community home, please contact our leasing staff. They’d love to give you a tour.
