    That is part of it but I went to games in Camden Yards in the mid 90's they were competive and the crowd still wasn't as involved as they were in Memorial Stadium.

You people really hate Baltimore don't you.
    Coly,

    Angelos is baseball's version of Danny-boy Snyder or Jerry Jones! You know......................an idiot!

    I despise the Yankees but loved the way Steinbrenner did business. He got the bang for his buck! Angelos must be made of Steinbrenner anti-matter!

    Your luck with owners there is pretty bad! Irsay stole your football team in the middle of the night as well!

    Regards,
    Dennis

    Your right the Orioles did all that winning at Memorial Stadium but I posted Camden Yards because thats were they play now. I have been to both stadiums and Camden Yards is beautiful but the fans at Memorial Stadium were much louder. One bad thing I do remember about Memorial Stadium is that the parking was horrible. They would put you into a lot and you would be pinned in on all four sides by a car and you could not leave until all the cars aroun you have moved.

    Shibe Park-Philadelphia






    This park always fascinated me,it looked like a building,not a baseball field.

    I only loved the Orioles in the '71 and '79 Series! That aside, there is nobody I enjoyed seeing in an argument more than Earl Weaver! Fans should have had to pay double for any game they saw him really let it go with an ump!

    The NFL's Colts also played there, before their move to Indianapolis.

    Oriole Park at Camden Yards. From the late 60's to early 80's the Orioles were one of the top franchises in baseball winning 7 division titles, 6 pennants and 3 World Championships. They have fallen on hard times since then only making it to the playoffs twice. One shining moment did happen in September, 1995 when Cal Ripken Jr. broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive game street.

    Of course, like all Scots, there's a place in my heart for the sacred turf of Hampden. The best in the world have come here, and more often than you'd think, have staggered away wondering what hit them.

    Slick, one he hit that day did go out over the roof covering the upper deck in right. I do believe it was the last of 3 he hit that day. But it wasn't the only. Stargell for sure, and possibly others, also did it.
