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.

For Nancy and Bob Reigle, the call came down to America's Colonial showplace versus the Orioles in the playoffs. "We have wanted to go to Williamsburg for some time," said Nancy Reigle, a retired teacher in the Baltimore County public schools who had scheduled a trip to begin Oct. 20 - the day before the start of the World Series. "I was keeping an eye on the schedules, and then I noticed that the American League has home field advantage [for the World Series], and that they could be playing in Baltimore that Tuesday and Wednesday.

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.

For some fans, it's not enough in this memorable, extended Orioles' season to merely watch the games. They yearn to preserve the all-too-fleeting moments - to touch them - by buying pieces of the season. They want to own the one-of-a-kind lineup cards that manager Buck Showalter displayed in the dugout during the American League Division Series and in the championship series that continues tonight against the Royals in Kansas City. Monday's game was rained out in the best-of-seven series, in which the Orioles trail, 2-0. Fans want to own the ball J.J. Hardy hit for a home run in the division series sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

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?

When the Orioles open their season Friday, it's a safe bet that while many in attendance will be rooting for the home team (and some for the visitors, alas), all will appreciate the venue. Oriole Park at Camden Yards has remained one of the great showplaces of Major League Baseball even 20 years after its first opening day game. Yet even today, some naysayers still question whether the public investment in Camden Yards was worthwhile. Economists point out that the direct financial return on stadiums is not particularly good - a criticism heard two decades ago, as well, by the way - and that some alternative public investment of $110 million might have served downtown better.

The Orioles are in Texas, but you can watch them play at Camden Yards. Open year round at Oriole Park, Dempsey's Brew Pub & Restaurant is running happy hour food and drink specials for all Orioles postseason road games (e.g.,  Friday night, and next Wednesday's ALDS against the Yankees): $2 Dempsey's drafts, $3 domestic beers, $2 hot dogs, $5 Dempsey's nachos and $5 burgers. There will be merchandise giveaways, too. Dempsey's is easy to reach by Light Rail (but it stops running at midnight)

There is only one hook left for the Orioles to hang their World Series hopes on, and it certainly isn't history. They have dug themselves a hole in the American League Championship Series that no team has ever climbed out of, so they'll have to dig deep into their own team chemistry to pull out this best-of-seven playoff after losing the first two games at home. The Orioles have been known for their resiliency throughout the Buck Showalter era. They have bounced back from all manner of adversity, especially during this unlikely AL East championship season, and they will have to do that over the next several days in Kansas City just to force the series back to Camden Yards.

As the bliss slowly ebbed out of Camden Yards on Saturday, the victim of another grinding effort by the unsinkable Kansas City Royals, a new reality set in for Orioles fans. Their team, so good for so many months, suddenly faces terribly long odds in this American League Championship Series. In fact, the Orioles might have played their last game in Baltimore this year. They'll have to win two of three in Kansas City just to make another date with the home crowd. As the announced sellout crowd of 46,912 filed out after a 6-4 loss, dreams of the World Series - so vibrant just 24 hours earlier - seemed far, far removed.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter isn't announcing his starters for Monday and Tuesday yet. But assuming neither one is needed out of the bullpen Saturday, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen will start Game 3 and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez will pitch Game 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals. Right-hander Bud Norris gets the nod for Game 2, partially because Chen has fared much better against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium than at home -- he has a 4.17 ERA in six starts overall, but a 2.84 ERA in two starts in Kansas City.

There are more similarities between the Orioles and their American League Championship Series opponent, the Kansas City Royals, than not - they both have solid pitching, stellar bullpens and play exemplary defense - but the way they score runs is completely different. The Orioles led the major leagues with 211 home runs in the regular season, 25 more than the next-highest club, while the Royals were last with just 95. But when it comes to stolen bases, the teams rank the exact opposite, with the Royals leading the majors with 153 and the Orioles ranking last with 44. Over the course of the season, Orioles players have often said they never feel out of any game because they know they can change it with one swing of the bat. And one only needs to look at the AL wild-card game - in which Kansas City stole seven bases and erased a four-run, sixth-inning lead on their way to beating the Oakland Athletics - to see how they've made speed an X-factor.

Not long after his team finished a three-game sweep Sunday night of the league-best Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie received a text message from one of his former teammates. Orioles reliever Brian Matusz congratulated Guthrie and the two exchanged brief pleasantries knowing that they'd probably have a chance to speak in person very soon. When the Orioles and Royals meet in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Friday night at Camden Yards, no player from either team will be able to put the unlikely matchup in perspective quite like Guthrie.

And there will be more baseball today. And possibly Tuesday morning. The rain has stopped, the tarp is off and the Orioles estimate a resumption of play at 11 p.m. At this point, the game is 4-2 Orioles with two outs in the bottom of the sixth. The rain delay began at 8:46 p.m. So we are looking at two hours and 14 minutes or so of a delay. That's a full NL game right there. Anyway, it ain't over yet between the Orioles and Angels.

Races in the Baltimore Running Festival will begin an hour earlier than originally scheduled because of the Orioles' deep run into the baseball postseason. In a letter to participants posted on the running festival's website , organizer Lee Corrigan wrote that start times were made earlier to "ensure all public safety personnel can be deployed in an organized fashion. " The festival, which includes a marathon, half-marathon, group relay, 5k and kids race, will stagger starting times between 7 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. on Oct. 18, the day the Orioles and Kansas City Royals would potentially play Game 7 of the American League Championship Series at Camden Yards.

Amid mounting fan frenzy, the Orioles began cashing in this summer on the team's runaway success. Capitalizing on the expected demand for postseason tickets this year, the team pitched 2015 season ticket plans with the opportunity to buy seats for October baseball at Camden Yards. The pitch proved successful. And as the Orioles continued to win, sweeping the Detroit Tigers in the American League Division Series, team officials expanded the program, offering more guaranteed games for buyers of larger season ticket packages.
