Have I mentioned my love of repurposed buildings? I probably have, since we’ve visited quite a few in some of our travels (old church turned brewery, old train station turned brunch spot, old prison turned hotel and dinner spot, etc.), but if you didn’t know, now you do. I’m also a sucker for being somewhere you can do something modern while amongst a piece of history. That’s part of why I love baseball and specifically Fenway Park so much- while you’re sitting there watching an MLB game with all the bells and whistles of the modern age, you’re in the same spot where players like Ted Williams played. And while Oriole Park at Camden Yards hasn’t been around nearly as long as some of the most memorable MLB parks- it was built in 1992- it still has that historical feel. Add in the fact that they’ve incorporated an old railroad warehouse into the stadium, and it’s really no wonder I was so enamored by Baltimore’s baseball mecca. Game 1 between the Orioles and Angels followed a late night the night before and a day of watching our first golf tournament, but we rallied, sunburns and all!
Just a couple of sports fans touring the world, one stadium at a time.
