Opened April 6, 1992, Oriole Park at Camden Yards remains the standard by which all new ballparks are measured.
After the Colts left Baltimore there was only one team left, The Orioles. The owner of the Orioles in the lates 1980s was some hot shot lawyer from Washington D.C, who stated he would NOT move the team. However, what he wanted was a new ball park for his Orioles. After just losing the Colts to Indy the city of Baltimore and the Govenor of Maryland decided that in order to make sure the Orioles stay a new stadium was to be constructed. The plan worked, not accordingly but what plans ever do? As a result the Orioles received not just a new home in Camden Yards, but one of the most beautiful ball parks in the game.
