In 25 years as an ironworker, Tom Wright has labored on his share of impressive projects: the Peach Bottom nuclear power facility, the Harbor Tunnel, the Bay Bridge.
"Just buildings," Wright said.
But Oriole Park at Camden Yards? "I've really got a feeling about this place."
For a year, Wright has been all over the ballpark: installing gates, handrails, a spiral staircase in Orioles owner Eli Jacobs' box, racks for the field lights, supports for the steel letters that announce the stadium's name.
He was on the site when there was no infield, no outfield, just old city street beds where ballplayers soon will roam. "We've actually seen the place take shape."
