Camden Yards is the ballpark that created the "retro" trend for new baseball stadiums. Built in Baltimore's historic old port area, it integrates the brick wall from a former factory on the site, and was part of a larger effort to revitalize the city's downtown.
In 2012, the Orioles unveiled a series of bronze statues depicting past Orioles greats outside the stadium. Those include Frank Robinson, Earl Weaver, Jim Palmer, Brooks Robinson, Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr.
