Oriole Park at Camden Yards has been home to the American League's Baltimore Orioles since 1992. Typically it is referred to as "Camden Yards." The park was constructed as one of the first "retro parks" that began being built in the early 1990's, ballparks that were built to resemble the older major league venues instead of the more modernized facilities such as the multi-purpose "concrete doughnut" stadiums which began being constructed in the later half of the 20th century. Other examples of retro facilities would include Pittsburgh's PNC Park and Cincinnati's Great American Ballpark.
The large building visible behind the outfield is the former B&O Warehouse, which is now used as office space for the team's management and areas for the use of the team itself. On the street outside the stadium is a statue of Baltimore native Babe Ruth, who once played for a minor-league club which also called themselves the "Baltimore Orioles." Eutaw Street, which is located between the warehouse and the stadium, is closed to non-ticketholders on gamedays. Traffic is also kept off of the roadway. On non-gamedays it is open to the entire public so that anyone can visit its many shops and restaurants.
Camden Yards has been home to a few historic events over the years. Career Oriole Cal Ripken Jr. broke Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played when he played his 2,131st game. Ripken also played his final major league game there in 2001 before retiring. The park was also host to the 1993 MLB All-Star game.
