Dear Stadium Doctor:

After examining the seating information chart for Oriole Park at Camden Yards, I can't figure out how fans seated in sections 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 52, 56, 204, 206, 208, 306 and 308 will be able to read the out-of-town scoreboard.

Are provisions being made to provide auxiliary scoreboards to these fans who because of their seat location are denied access to the out-of-town scores?

Dear Thomas G. Hughes:

Thank you for your letter and your question. I did a little research -- the only kind I do -- and have come up with some information you may find useful. If you don't, please keep it to yourself. I bruise easily.

The Orioles know people in these sections are getting cheated out of out-of-town scores. So, they did them a favor, sort of. The auxiliary scoreboard in left field, visible from the sections you mention, will show not only the Orioles score but also, most times, one score of an out-of-town game.

Dear Stadium Doctor:

I am writing to inquire about handicapped parking at the new ballpark.

If there are provisions for handicapped parking: (1) How many spaces will be provided? (2) Where will they be located? (3) How close to the entrance gates will they be?

Dear Lawrence H. Steinfelt:

Thanks for writing, and for thinking I might know the answer to important questions.

Here's what I do know on this subject: There are 100 handicapped parking spaces at the ballpark, available on a first-come, first-served basis. They are located near the ballpark, in lots A and B/C. Finally, you must have state-issued handicapped-plates to use them.
