Opening Week is a month away. But already it is too late to join in one of the activities related to the opening of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Oriole Advocates 8-K Home Run road race is closed. Last week, entries for the event, scheduled for April 5, a day before the ballpark's official opening, reached the limit of 2,000, race director Les Kinion said.
The race route will connect Baltimore's baseball past with its future -- beginning at Memorial Stadium and winding through downtown streets to the new ballpark, where runners will finish on the outfield warning track.
