Pandora soon will add its logo to the city's skyline as the company relocates its regional headquarters for the Americas and about 250 employees to Baltimore from Columbia by early 2015. The Danish jeweler known for its charm bracelets announced Thursday that it will lease five floors of the building at 250 W. Pratt St. with rights to place its bright-white logo on two sides of the skyscraper, easily visible from the stands at Oriole Park at Camden Yards . The move should serve the dual purpose of increasing Pandora's prominence in the region while accommodating the growing retailer's workforce, said Scott Burger, president of Pandora Americas.

Ernest L. Caldwell Jr., a retired senior city planner and urban designer who did early studies for what became Oriole Park at Camden Yards , died of complications of Parkinson's disease July 8 at Keswick Multi-Care Center. The Stoneleigh resident was 74. Colleagues said Mr. Caldwell, a longtime baseball fan, had an early and influential role in convincing city officials of the potential of the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad property adjacent to Camden Station as the site of a new sports field.

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.

"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.

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.

When baseball commissioner Bud Selig said recently that Baltimore was a "very, very viable candidate" to host the 2016 All-Star Game at Camden Yards, those who have sought for the Midsummer Classic's return to the city for years received a boost to their hopes. The Orioles organization isn't commenting publicly on Selig's words, however, because it doesn't want to be viewed as campaigning for the annual event, which has been held in Baltimore twice. The American League won, 9-3, in 1993 at Camden Yards in the second season of the stadium's existence.

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.

First the wind came, then the rain, and then the wait. While the Orioles waited through a 2-hour, 22-minute rain delay at Camden Yards, Sunday night turned into Monday morning. Inside the Orioles clubhouse, players kept watch of the clocks, ready to disperse across the country for the All-Star break after the game. “It was kind of crazy,” Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman said. “I made the joke, 'We're pretty much on the All-Star break. " Eleven minutes after midnight, the game officially was called, giving the Orioles a 3-1 victory over the division rival New York Yankees.

There's a distinct dichotomy that surrounds Orioles center fielder Adam Jones in Baltimore. He is the club's most consistent performer and surely one of its most ardent community ambassadors. His No. 10 jersey is the most prevalent on any given night in the stands at Camden Yards. On a team known for its grittiness, no one plays harder or more often. On Monday night, Jones competed in the annual Home Run Derby, hitting three home runs in the second round but didn't advance to the final. On Tuesday night at Target Field in Minneapolis, Jones will join teammates Nelson Cruz and the injured Matt Wieters - all of whom were elected to start by the fans - in representing the Orioles at baseball's annual All-Star Game.

By definition, it was the New York Yankees who were in  pinstripes at Camden Yards for the Orioles' 3-2 win in 10 innings Friday night . Their fans, as always, were out in abundance, making up at least half of the sellout crowd. But these weren't the dominating, punch-you-in-the-gut Bronx Bombers of old. This Yankees club was making its 2014 debut in the city with no Mariano Rivera, no CC Sabathia and no Alex Rodriguez. Its centerpiece for so many seasons, shortstop Derek Jeter, is 40 and retiring at the end of this year.

The New York Yankees typically are known as a patient team at the plate, one that works counts and fouls off pitches to extend opponents' pitch counts. Not so in the Orioles' 3-2, walk-off win in 10 innings Friday night at Camden Yards. Make no mistake: These aren't the Bronx Bombers of old. Yangervis Solarte and Kelly Johnson don't necessarily strike the same fear into opposing pitchers as the sluggers who used to be in the Yankees' lineup. Even veterans known to work counts, such as former Oriole Brian Roberts and Ichiro Suzuki, seemed to be more swing-happy at Camden Yards on Friday night.

Injured Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, who is out for the season as he recovers from Tommy John elbow surgery, joined the club Thursday at Camden Yards. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wieters “looks great” and is in good spirits. The catcher will travel to Minnesota for the All-Star Game and hopes to rejoin the Orioles in late July, after the club's West coast road trip. Wieters was voted to the All-Star Game despite playing in just 26 games this year, the last on May 10. He batted .308 with five home runs in 104 at-bats.

Washington Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth said he was sitting on the bench at Nationals Park on Monday night, and a weird feeling took over. His new team was playing against his old team. And though that has happened before for McLouth - he has been on four major league clubs - this one seemed different. “It was a little strange. I was here so recently, and had that [Orioles] uniform on so recently, and it's a very similar team to last year and the year before, so it was a little strange,” McLouth said.

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?

HOUSTON -- Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said before Friday's Civil Rights Game that he sees Baltimore as a leading candidate to host the 2016 All-Star Game. “Yes, they're certainly a very, very viable candidate,” Selig said before the Orioles' game against the Houston Astros. “When you think back, Camden Yards really started this whole ballpark expansion, and I believe that's one of the primary reasons for baseball attendance being at the historic high that it is today.” Selig, who is retiring at the end of this season, will select the locations for the 2016 and 2017 All-Star Games, and said he hopes to continue alternating the game's site between leagues.

The Orioles ideally wanted to work right-hander Bud Norris back into the rotation gradually as he returned from his trip to the disabled list with a right groin strain, and a key caveat of that in the eyes of manager Buck Showalter was getting Norris two starts before the All-Star break. Tuesday's rainout at Nationals Park put a wrench in those plans, postponing Norris' first start in 2 1/2 weeks until the Orioles' return to Camden Yards on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.

WASHINGTON -- Thanks to a persistent rainstorm Tuesday night, the budding Orioles-Nationals rivalry has been moved 50 miles up the road, but it will make a return appearance to the nation's capital in August. Tuesday's finale of a two-game series at Nationals Park was postponed after a two-hour, 30-minute rain delay. It will be made up Aug. 4 in Washington - no time for that game has been announced yet. According to Nationals manager Matt Williams, a day-night doubleheader in Washington and Baltimore this week was never in consideration because both teams have the common day off in the Baltimore-Washington area in August.
