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.

The O’s rule summer & the Ravens pretty much just rule. But, let’s take a look at & compare the stadium experiences Baltimore sports fans are lucky enough to partake in all year round.
