And yet, around this same Baltimore metropolitan area, something isn't happening. Although the Orioles are fielding a contending team for the first time since the Clinton administration, attendance at Oriole Park at Camden Yards has been abysmal lately. Monday night drew fewer than 11,000 fans, the second-smallest crowd of the year, to watch Nate McLouth slug a homer in the eighth inning to lead the O's to yet another improbable come-from-behind victory. Tuesday night wasn't much better, as young Chris Tillman pitched his heart out, allowing only one run over seven innings against a powerful Chicago White Sox lineup. It's a municipal embarrassment.
