Boston Red Sox @ Baltimore Orioles, 9/20/09

I checked out of my hotel in the morning, left my car in the parking garage of the hotel next door, and walked back over to Camden Yards. This time, I got there early and the plan was to take some pictures. First, I went to the Sports Legends Museum right near the park. It wasn’t bad, but the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum a few blocks away was much cooler. It was a weird feeling standing in the house where Babe Ruth was born.

His 714 regular season home runs, and World Series homers.

There’s a Babe Ruth statue outside the park, as well.

Inside the park, there are baseballs on the ground marking all the home runs hit onto the street next to the warehouse.

The game itself was another Red Sox blowout of the Orioles. They were up 7-0 before the Orioles scored a run, and the final score was 9-3. The place was mostly full of Red Sox fans, so the crowd was happy with what was going on.

In the middle of the game, I moved myself down to field level.
Moved into the sun... And field level :)

After the game, I drove to Jason’s, where’d I be staying the rest of the time in the DC area.

As always, all pictures from the game in the set.
