Fun if you like baseball. Sit on the West side so you don't roast in the sun. Typically OVERPRICED sports venue food and drink. I recommend that you avoid the food and beer, go to Libbeys after the game.

Went to a spring training game with the Orioles. It was my first time at a spring training game. The facility was lovely. I believe it's fairly new. What a pleasure to be able to park close to the stadium and have such a close view. Everything was clean and neat. I'm accustomed to go to the major league actual... More

Whether it was the RedSox, Reds and now the orioles...you'll always have a great time here. The Oreo's moved in after the reds and changed the entire stadium inside and out which was way overdue. If theres a club in town of a major league affiliate, be sure to stop in and catch a came and some food.

Took our baseball loving nephew to a preseason game. He and his Uncle had a blast! Nice to see a professional team in a small venue.

The Orioles winter home is a great place to watch baseball. Sit on the first base side on a sunny day, or be prepared to broil.

Not a bad seat in the place - - while you are there try the seafood! Not bad for a ballpark!! Parking can be a hassle - - but go early!!

You can up-close to the players as you watch them warm up in the bull pen. The seats are comfortable and every seat has a great view. The $$ used to build this stadium was worth the investment. This is a first class location.

Used to be you could go to a preseason game pretty cheap. Not so anymore the food prices and souvenirs are just about the same price as the big show stadiums. That seems unfair since half the time the players you are watching will never see the inside of Camden Yards without a ticket. Also be careful where you sit... More
