Trapped in Camden Yards: Two fans tell Deadspin their story

February 15, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Imagine my surprise this morning when I pulled up and saw that the sports website's main image was a fan climbing the left-field foul pole at Camden Yards. Now that's something you don't see every day.

Apparently, two Orioles fans emailed Deadspin claiming they somehow got locked inside Camden Yards during a rain-out and romped around the beautiful ballpark as if it was their personal playground. They climbed the foul pole, slid across the infield tarp like it was a Slip 'n Slide, made grilled cheese sandwiches at Boog's and drank themselves silly with stolen Bud Light. Allegedly.

This story sounds pretty unbelievable, but hey, it  could happen. Read it here and tell me if you think it's legit.

Update: My former boss, Luke Broadwater, chatted with these gentlemen. Check out the interview here.
