Oriole Park (II)
Please note: As I have mentioned before, instead of getting silly with parks, I only count a park once per site. There were two parks here, but since it is only one site, I only count it once. I have broken down each site below.
|Team: Baltimore Orioles (AA 1890-91)||Opening Day: August 27, 1890|
|Closing Day: May 9, 1891|
Oriole Park (IV)
|Team: Baltimore Orioles (AL 1901-02)||Opening Day: April 26, 1901|
|Closing Day: September 29, 1902||AKA: American League Park|
The outfield fence met the outfield at an obtuse angel, like Ebbets Field. This park was the first home of the New York Yankees. After 1902, the American League Orioles moved the New York and would become the Bronx Bombers. After the American League Orioles left, the AAA International League Orioles moved in. This park was located right across the street from Oriole Park (V), home of the Federal League Terrapins. While the Terrapins were in town, most people forgot about the Orioles. Only 200 people were in attendance to see the professional debut of George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Later that year he was sold to Boston and the Orioles moved to Richmond.
