Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Baltimore, MD 21201
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the beautiful baseball-only facility in downtown Baltimore, became the official home of the Orioles on April 6, 1992. The construction of the park was completed in essentially 33 months from the time razing previous structures on the 85-acre parcel began June 28, 1989 in the area known as Camden Yards.
The club will unveil large bronze sculptures of six legendary Orioles throughout the season, to be located in the improved bullpen picnic grove and accessible for fans year-round, even during non-gameday hours. The works, created by renowned Maryland sculptor Antonio Tobias "Toby" Mendez, will be dedicated at different 2012 games: Frank Robinson on April 28; Brooks Robinson on May 12; Earl Weaver on June 30; Jim Palmer on July 14; Eddie Murray on Aug. 11; and Cal Ripken Jr. on Sept. 6.
Also in celebration of the anniversary, the Orioles have upgraded the ballpark with features including a new roof deck above the center field batter's eye, the Art of the Game sports art gallery and food options like Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant, named for former Orioles catcher and 1983 World Series MVP Rick Dempsey.
