"We're here to please the palate of the Baltimore foodies," Abramson 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.

Darren O'Day is set apart from other relievers by his sidearm delivery, his own version of the “Ole” song, and his 0.92 ERA, among other things. And he can add another to the list. “I have a couple things going for me, and now I have a T-shirt,” O'Day said Wednesday, when the Orioles gave out orange T-shirts with his “O'Day” song and a silhouette logo of his sidearm delivery. “It's pretty exciting. I never expected a T-shirt.” O'Day pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, his 10th scoreless outing in a row. He has allowed one run in 14 appearances since the All-Star break, and he has struck out more than one batter per inning this season.

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.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

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.

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.

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?

Maybe just a night sleeping in their own beds was all the Orioles needed for their bats to wake up following a weekend of Chicago slumber at Wrigley Field. "The hits, the runs, all of it,” shortstop J.J. Hardy said. “Slumped a little bit there in Chicago, but it's nice to come out first game this homestand and score some runs. " The Orioles blasted Tampa Bay Rays pitching with five homers in their 9-1 win Monday night in the first of 11 straight games at Camden Yards. They went 74 games between three-game losing streaks this season, which might be why being swept by the Cubs this weekend was so startling.

The Orioles figured out a simple way Monday night to bust out of an offensive skid that cost them three games at Wrigley Field over the weekend. Get home -- and start homering. And keep homering, in consecutive at-bats, if possible, until you've beaten the opposition into submission and set a little franchise history. In a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, the Orioles had 14 hits -- including five home runs by five different players -- to snap their three-game losing streak.

CHICAGO - The Orioles can seal their ninth series win in their past 10 with a victory tonight against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, who pitched for the Indians from July 2011 through last season, returned to Progressive Field for the first time Friday. “Being in the visitors' clubhouse is kind of weird,” said Jimenez, who left Cleveland for a four-year, $50 million deal with the Orioles in February. “I have to get used to it.” He is slated to start Saturday against the Indians for the second time this year. On May 24 at Camden Yards he lasted just four innings and gave up five earned runs against his old club.

A light rail train briefly derailed near Oriole Park at Camden Yards Wednesday afternoon, temporarily limiting vehicle and foot traffic from Conway and Howard streets to the east side of the B&O Warehouse. A photo posted on Twitter showed the train jumped the track near the entrance to access road that leads to stadium parking lots at the intersection of Conway and Howard. Cars remained upright. A Maryland Transit Administration spokesperson said 10 people were aboard at the time of the derailment, but nobody was injured.

When Baltimore City baseball players took the field Saturday at Camden Yards, they were supposed to have been playing for the city high school championship. The weather was perfect for a ballgame, but a positively ridiculous amount of snow and rain in the late winter and early spring this season forced enough postponements to delay the baseball postseason. So instead of the city championship, the teams with the best records in Baltimore City Divison 1 - Poly and Academy for College and Career Exploration - played what was just another afternoon game at the Yard.

To put it mildly, Baltimore is an interesting choice for the potentially historic owners meeting this week that is expected to determine who will be baseball's next commissioner. Representatives of the 30 clubs will come together Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency for two days of meetings and politicking that could shape Major League Baseball for the next generation. That's great. We love it when important things happen in Baltimore, but we'd probably love it a lot more if the election of baseball's new fearless leader came along with an announcement that the 2016 All-Star Game will be at Camden Yards or some kind of resolution to the long-simmering television rights dispute between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals.

The Orioles' game against the New York Yankees that was postponed Tuesday because of rain will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader Sept. 12 at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. There was a possibility that the game would be made up during Thursday's common day off between the two teams, but they agreed to reschedule the game for the Yankees' final trip to Camden Yards next month. Tickets for Tuesday's postponed game will be good for the 1:05 p.m. game Sept. 12. Fans unable to attend the makeup game can exchange their tickets for any remaining home game on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
