Museum requests more time to plan


The Babe Ruth Museum, which is planning to create an $8 million baseball center inside historic Camden Station, has asked the Maryland Stadium Authority for additional time to complete its plans.

The museum board was to have presented a financial plan and design by June 15 for reusing the state-owned train station, which is next to Oriole Park at Camden Yards and dates from the 1850s. Just before the deadline, the board requested an eight-month extension of its negotiating agreement.

At a stadium authority meeting last week, the authority took no action on the request. Executive Director Bruce Hoffman said the museum has a "good plan" and called it "complementary to the ballpark." However, he said the authority wants more information, including the extent to which the Baltimore Orioles would be involved and provide financial support.
