Great American ballparks

By Christopher Smith, Special to The Los Angeles Times Camden Yards, Baltimore Why you gotta go: Like no other modern stadium, this throwback palace of brick and steel captures the feel of the game’s 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 sandwich—plus an autograph—visit 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. Greg Fiume / Getty Images
