Tale Of The Tape: Camden Yards Vs. M&T Bank Stadium

Yep, Baltimore’s got it pretty good. Two franchises with a history of winning (even though one has ummm….lagged behind in recent years) &  2 modern stadiums located in downtown Baltimore that house rabid fan bases.

Camden Yards

M&T Bank Stadium

Classic architecture that ushered in a national renaissance in classic ballpark design. Nationally lauded & influential. Architecture um, it's newish....and next to Camden Yards
Retired jersey numbers & the 'Babe's Dream' statue out front. Bronze sculptures of O's greats behind the bullpen. Statues Johnny U statue (you've touched the shoe!); Ray Lewis statue coming soon.
Dirty Water dogs & 105.7 The Fan broadcasting at Pickles Pub. Gameday Experience Outside Tailgating (that would be enough), Ravens Walk, 105.7 The Fan's Gameday Warehouse & Lot O
Orioles recently revamped their vending & offerings. Kid friendly activities, Boogs! Gamedy Experience Inside Cheerleaders ('nuff said)
Let's just say it ain't Memorial Stadium; hopefully more winning will dispel the 'Fenway South' nickname & chants of "Let's Go Yankees" that sometimes take over the stadium. Fans Absolutely Rabid!
Zero World Championships while in residence 2 Lombardi Trophys!

The winner is
