Warehouse replica planned at stadium

What was a grassy hill just beyond right field during the Ripken World Series in August soon will be a 300-foot-long, 200-room Marriott hotel - a scale replica of the B&O Warehouse and a defining feature of the Cal Sr.'s Yard youth field.

Baltimore developer H&S Properties will build the hotel that will occupy the warehouse. Part of it will be branded as Marriott's Residence Inn and part as Courtyard by Marriott.

Bill Ripken, who was joined by his brother, retired Orioles All-Star Cal, and their mother, Vi, for the formal groundbreaking, called the hotel the "showpiece" of a virtual baseball city that will span 110 acres off Interstate 95 in Aberdeen.

When completed, the complex will re-create the experience of playing at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
