So what is the secret to the Orioles success?
Lloyd Brown of Stadium Journey says,”Instead of tearing down the surrounding neighborhood, they embraced it and incorporated it into the stadium design. In the years since Camden Yards was built the Orioles have concentrated on every element of the fan experience by constantly upgrading the concession offerings, creating special promotions celebrating the diversity of Baltimore’s population and making customer service the first priority for its game day staff.”MORE NEWS: Ravens' Football Clinic Helps Children Improve Sports Skills
