Camden Yards memories from Baltimore Banner staff

Baltimore Banner columnist Leslie Gray Streeter and son Brooks at an Orioles game this summer.

I love going to Camden Yards with my son, Brooks Robinson Streeter-Zervitz, because it’s a connection to my husband who named him after his favorite Orioles player and also because it’s fun to say it out loud in the stadium and confuse people.

Leslie wrote about Camden Yards on the big and small screen in this story.

Bill Warren, Chief Philanthropy Officer

LOTS of memories from OPACY but notably my rehearsal dinner was held at Camden Yards in 1996 and it turned out to be the night that Eddie Murray hit his 500th home run. There was a two hour rain delay and so I have to confess I didn’t get to see the historic homer in person. I also attended Cal Ripken’s last game as an Oriole at the park.

Imani Spence, Arts and Culture writer

The student section in Camden Yards gave me many, many fun and cheap nights during college. I’m wondering how common it is for parks to cover such inexpensive tickets. When I was in school they were $7 if you could buy them at the box office; can’t beat it!

One of my favorite giveaways was a hat from the Negro League team in Baltimore that was provided by the Negro League Museum in Owings Mills.

We’re looking forward to hearing your stories and seeing your photos! We may use them for a story on our site next week.
