Great American ballparks
Camden Yards, Baltimore
Why you gotta go: Like no other modern stadium, this throwback palace of brick and steel captures the feel of the games early years.
Game plan: Pregame, visit the nearby Babe Ruth Museum. Mid-game, spend half an inning in the standing-room viewing deck that overlooks right field.
Catbird seats: With great sightlines, every section is good.
7th-inning stretch: For a beef brisket sandwichplus an autographvisit Boog Powell, Oriole-player-turned-pit master, at his barbecue stand behind center field.
Standout stat: Flipped upright, the hulking brick railroad warehouse that looms behind right and center fields would be almost the same height as the Eiffel Tower.
Don't miss: The Eutaw Street walkway behind center field, with its food stands, shops and Orioles wall of fame.
