“preseason baseball”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

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.

“nice new stadium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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.

“Great place to see a game and enjoy the ballpark food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

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!!

“First class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

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.

“Happy the O's are in town, prices keep going up though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

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 because your flesh will melt off if you are on the third base side!
