The Baltimore Orioles announced the dates for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Oriole Park as the franchise continues to deliver impressive promotions throughout the season.
The Baltimore Orioles promotional schedule now includes the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Oriole Park. Instead of just a one-day celebration, the Baltimore Orioles announced they will host a two-day event on Friday, Aug. 18 and Saturday, Aug. 19 as the Orioles take on the Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels at 7:05 pm. ET.
The celebrated Oriole Park at Camden Yards commenced on April 6 during the 1992 season and changed the city of Baltimore forever. The trailblazing ballpark was named by StadiumJourney.com as the top-ranked ballpark experience in MLB for the third straight year.
According to the Orioles’ press release, the team is inviting 17 players of the first team to play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, packed with Orioles Legends and Hall of Famers including Cal Ripken, Jr., Brady Anderson, Rick Dempsey, Chris Hoiles and Gregg Olson. Some of the players from the 1992 Orioles season will compete in a Home Run Derby for charity at OPACY before Saturday’s game.

But first, the Oriole Advocates will host a luncheon in the Warehouse to kick off the weekend full of events. In the evening, all fans in attendance for Friday’s game will take in an Oriole Park 25-year anniversary poster. Lastly, to conclude the first day of celebrations, fans can observe a grand fireworks display supplemented with the biggest music hits from 1992.
Make sure to arrive at the ballpark early Saturday as all attendees will receive a 25-year anniversary Oriole Park at Camden Yards replica ballpark upon arrival to OPACY. The pregame will consist of honoring the returning players who opened the ballpark in 1992, along with the Home Run Derby.
