BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Camden Yards, a place widely known has one of the nicest ballparks in baseball, has got a high honor from Reader’s Digest.

The ballpark was ranked 5th in “Nicest Place in America.”

But apparently, it’s only the second nicest place in Maryland. Camden Yards was ranked two spots behind Rock Hall, the waterfront town in Kent County. They have a motto that says, “Nice People Live Here.”

On Rock Hall, the magazine wrote “Rock Hall is the kind of place you visit and think, ‘I should move here. On Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, this town treats strangers like neighbors and neighbors like family.”

Camden Yards also finished behind Gallatin, Tennessee, Plufgerville High School in Austin, Texas, Rock Hall, and Roger and Shirley Doaks’ house in Waterford, Ohio.

As for Camden Yards, the magazine wrote: “By holding its powerful spotlight at the right angle, Oriole Park has gone beyond its role as America’s best ballpark to help big-hearted Baltimore honor its most important heroes.”
