With heavy rain coming down for much of Tuesday in the Baltimore area, there was little doubt that the Orioles' scheduled game against the Tampa Bay Rays would be postponed. But both teams arrived at Camden Yards with hope that the clouds would give way in time to play. A little more than 90 minutes before the scheduled 7:05 p.m. start, however, the game was officially postponed. No makeup date was immediately announced. Orioles manager Buck Showalter hinted earlier Tuesday that the two clubs could have played a doubleheader Wednesday, but they'll only play the regularly scheduled 12:35 p.m. game.

Billy Howarth filled a plastic bottle with bright blue cornstarch and patiently waited for the first of the Color Run participants to pass through the blue zone. "They told us we have to go like a hose," said Howarth, a 21-year-old University of Delaware student in town to volunteer as a color thrower for Saturday's 5K run, as he motioned the bottle from side to side. "You can't go up and down. And for little kids we have to do it gently. " The color throwers covered their mouths with bandannas as the first runners came through, pelting them with blue until a cloud of color rose high into the air in the parking lot near Oriole Park at Camden Yards . Blue was the last of five colors the runners would race through before crossing the finish line.

Gino's is coming to Camden Yards. The Gino's Burgers & Chicken operation at Camden Yards will be a licensing arrangement between the King of Prussia-based restaurant franchise and the stadium's concessionaire, Buffalo-based Delaware North Companies Sportservice. Sportservice President Rick Abramson confirmed the Gino's addition and restated his commitment to improving the amenities at Camden Yards that his company began last season, its first at Oriole Park. "We're here to please the palate of the Baltimore foodies," Abramson said.

The Orioles are still battling a lingering flu as they head into this afternoon's series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards. Tomorrow's off day probably couldn't come at a better time. Illness has struck so many players that the entire home clubhouse at Camden Yards was disinfected, all the way down to the ping-pong paddles and pool sticks. “Unfortunately, a lot of it is contagious before you really know you've got it,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Since 1992, its inaugural year, Camden Yards has brought over 55 million people into downtown Baltimore. If each of those fans spent just $25 while in Baltimore, the state will have earned almost $84 million in sales tax revenue, and add a few million more for parking and alcohol taxes. The stadium only cost $110 million to build, about $2 for each visitor. Any Orioles fan will tell you that many in attendance at Camden Yards come from out of state. These tourists bring money into Maryland; the hotels out-of-towners stay at, the gas they buy, the flights they take and the parking they pay for put money in the state's coffers.

I've read the sports pages and seen the articles about the greatest games and most exciting sports moments at Camden Yards, and they bring back memories. But the greatest event at Camden Yards was not sports related at all. It was the Mass celebrated by Pope John Paul II in October of 1995. On that day, 60,000 people were entranced and had their hearts and spirits profoundly touched by a great man. None found the need to overindulge in beer or to fight or to curse. Peace, love, hope and charity reigned at Camden Yards on that day. As a Jewish man living in Baltimore, I didn't attend.

To mark the 20th anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards , Pabst Brewing Company is releasing commemorative National Bohemian cans.  For a limited time, your regular 16-ounce Natty Bohs will feature new packaging that has a brawny Mr. Boh swinging a bat and the Baltimore skyline in the background. His head is roughly as big as the Natty Boh logo on the can. The cans have been released to wholesellers already and should be making their way to any bar or liquor store that already carries Boh, said a spokeswoman for Pabst.

Burgers, fries, nachos, pizza. Camden Yards is still offering lots of tasty - but high calorie and fatty -- foods to please visitors, according to Alison Massey, a dietitian at Mercy Medical Center , who took stock on Opening Day. But she said careful eaters can get away without doing too much damage. “I had a turkey burger, which is probably the best among the meat choices,” she said. “I saw sunflower seeds and peanuts, and they're good too because they contain protein.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. If you're happy and you know it And you really want to show it If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands. Can someone please tell me how this inane little ditty that appeals to four year-olds is supposed to fire up a major league baseball team and its fans? I'll bet the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, and so on, shudder in horror, quaking in their collective spikes whenever they hear our "fight song" as they set foot on the turf of our beloved baseball cathedral.

Jim Johnson walked off the mound at Camden Yards on Wednesday night, having just given up the one-run lead the Orioles had secured in the previous inning. A spattering of boos drizzled down upon him from above. It was not what soggy and groggy fans wanted to see after sitting through an hour-long pregame rain delay. I understand their frustration. I get that the paid ticket-holders have every right to boo whomever they feel like booing . But doesn't Johnson, who leads the major leagues with 27 saves, deserve better than this?

The flu that hit the Orioles clubhouse last week affected two more players Tuesday. The Orioles sent center fielder Adam Jones and right-handed relief pitcher Evan Meek home from Camden Yards before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays was postponed because of rain. Neither player would have been available if the Orioles and Rays would have played. “From what I understand, it's going on all over,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “It's not just in our locker room. Unfortunately, a lot of it is unavoidable other than don't touch or communicate with people all day. That's pretty hard to do in this sport.

Whether you identify within the LGBT spectrum or not, we can all agree that when it comes down to it, we're all rooting for the same team," said Kelly Neel, the GLCCB's deputy executive director, in a statement.

In the eyes of Orioles manager Buck Showalter, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen battled some tough luck in his first two starts of the season. He pitched well enough to win, his skipper said, but was victimized by seeing-eye hits that led to some early exits. After allowing nearly two hits an inning in those starts, Chen set the tone early against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night at Camden Yards and ended up turning in his best start of the year. Chen didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning and held the Rays to one run and five hits over 6 1/3 innings, leading the Orioles (6-7)

The Orioles open a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight at Camden Yards. Rays right-hander Chris Archer will start, and Orioles left-handed hitters David Lough and Ryan Flaherty are in the lineup. Right-handed hitters Delmon Young and Jonathan Schoop aren't starting; otherwise, the lineup is pretty predictable. Here are both team's starting lineups: Orioles Nick Markakis RF Nelson Cruz DH Chris Davis 1B Adam Jones CF Matt Wieters C David Lough LF J.J. Hardy SS Steve Lombardozzi 2B Ryan Flaherty 3B Wei-Yin Chen LHP Rays Ben Zobrist 2B Desmond Jennings CF Logan Forsythe DH Evan Longoria 3B Wil Myers RF James Loney 1B Brandon Guyer LF Yunel Escobar SS Ryan Hanigan C Chris Archer RHP

New Orioles closer Tommy Hunter was one pitch away from his fourth save in as many chances Saturday night before he didn't get the check swing, third-strike call he wanted. On the next pitch, he didn't get the save either, as Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus yanked a 98-mph fastball over the right-center wall to tie the game and push the Orioles into their first extra-innings game of the young season. The Orioles rebounded three innings later when Steve Lombardozzi tripled with one out and then scored on David Lough's single to give the Orioles a 2-1, 12-inning victory and send what was remaining of the announced crowd of 30,446 at Camden Yards home happy.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Spoiler alert! A scene in the recently-released second season of "House of Cards" that features fictional politician Frank Underwood throwing out a pregame first pitch before an Orioles game at Camden Yards was less than three minutes long but it took two full months to execute. In the sixth episode of Season 2 of the Netflix political drama - which is filmed in the Baltimore area - the scene includes a staged national anthem and features cameos by former Orioles Jim Johnson and Nate McLouth.

At Camden Yards on Friday, baseballs, the scent of sizzling hot dogs and a beautiful blue sky were in the air as the Orioles played the Minnesota Twins in their home opener. The smell of cigarette smoke was not, though, as the Maryland Stadium Authority began the enforcement of a smoking ban at the Camden Yards Sports and Entertainment Complex, which includes Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. Friday's game was the first since the smoking ban was put into effect. It prohibits smoking or carrying lit tobacco products - including cigarettes, cigars and pipes - within 25 feet of the stadium and the Warehouse, as well as in the outdoor space along Eutaw Street between gates A and H. Camden Yards was one of 10 Major League Baseball ballparks that had designated smoking areas within the ballpark last season, according to the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation.

The Orioles have only scored two runs in 21 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays, but Saturday night's 2-1 victory at Camden Yards had the heady feel of one of those extra-inning wins that made 2012 such a magical year. And the Orioles still have a chance to win the series if they can muster some offense against Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle today. David Lough eventually delivered a game-winning single off Toronto reliever Todd Redmond after Steve Lombardozzi hit a long triple to center field with one out in the 12th inning.

DETROIT -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said during spring training that left fielder David Lough could be eased, at some point, into the leadoff role against right-handers. Six games into the season, Lough has started four times and batted first twice - in consecutive games against right-handers Saturday and Sunday - after hitting second in his first two starts of the year. Showalter hasn't committed to the speedy Lough as the permanent leadoff hitter yet, instead of right fielder Nick Markakis, but it looks like it could end up that way. “It's an option.
