Camden Yards anniversary season: A time to mourn

February 24, 2012 | John Kirkner

If you are like most Oriole fans who remember Oriole magic and the winning wins at Memorial Stadium you are struggling with the gutwrenching results of the last 20 years. As the anniversary of Camden Yards comes into paly and the organization promotes the stadium over the team, it’s time to realize the fix was in from day one. Unfortunately O’s fans the organiztion spent 15 years selling a stadium as their product and now they have moved to cable as their product. Baseball never moved to Camden Yards it died with Memorial Stadium. If you were promised seats in the same area when you moved to Camden only to find you were in left field when you used to be at third and some DC law office had your seats you could’ve seen it coming. When the bleachers were renamed Eutaw street reserved you coul have seen it coming. Drew has been asking how to protest the Orioles and the organizations obvious disdain for you as a fan. The answer is protest this so called celebration of 20 years of losing, being ignored, and don’t give then money for a product other than baseball.

    I would like to see mass protest but people have jobs and middle class fans are struggling to survive here in Maryland. It’s not going to happen and all the media outlets besides WNST are just feeding at the trough.I’ll go to my usual one game against a non New York or Boston home crowd on a hot summer day and just imagine its Palmer on the hill,Brooks at third,and Frank in the outfield.Sucks
