BALTIMOREĀ (WJZ) — Orioles fans flooded Camden Yards for their first chance to see the O’s in the postseason in 15 years.

Meghan McCorkell has more on the fans’ excitement.

A sea of orange and black filled the stands at Camden Yards.

“This year, it’s just been unbelievable,” said one fan.

Orioles magic is spreading across the city. For lifelong fans, it’s a far cry from the days where more Yankee fans filled the seats here.

“It’s kind of rough to get hassled by them in your own stadium so it’s nice to actually turn the tables,” said Mike Thorn.

Even New York fans are feeling the electricity in Baltimore.

“I really love it. These people are so nice and I love the city,” said Yankees fan Paul Pagnato.

From Sky Eye Chopper 13, you can see the packed crowds as the Orioles battle it out in the postseason.

It’s a welcome sight for Luther Miracle, who’s been an usher at Camden Yards for 51 years. He’s seen it all and says there’s something special about this team.

“It’s been terrific. It’s tremendous. It’s amazing. It’s hard to believe,” Miracle said.

It’s been a long wait for those whose love of the orange and black has spanned generations.

“When I was a little kid, my grandfather took me to the World Series in ’70 and ’71 so it’s been a long time. I’ve been waiting to come back,” said Jay Werner.

And O’s fans could potentially see more playoff action here at Camden Yards. Tickets for the next round of the championship series go on sale Tuesday.

Now, fans are coming together and hoping this magical season doesn’t end any time soon.

Game three in the series will be played in New York on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
