Live from Baltimore

camden.jpg

It’s may not be 1992 anymore, but this place still holds up great. One of the best scenes in all of baseball, this Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Dig the PNC sign on the scoreboard, with Cal Ripken waving out to the crowd during his 2,131st game. A classic moment, and a little telling that the Orioles don’t have anything more current to trumpet. But I digress.

It’s also one of the more dangerous press boxes in the league. This snapshot was taken from the front row, where I’m sitting tonight, and should give you some idea of how close to home plate it is. When the foul balls come up this way, they are screaming.

There’s a classic story about how Ripken launched a foul ball up this way to hit a computer being used by Ken Rosenthal when the scribe wrote how Ripken’s streak needed to end. You’ll still hear it from Camden Yards tour guides if you come up here. The story was partially confirmed here on MLB.com within the last few years — like all good tales, it’s been a little embellished over the years.

Andy Pettitte (11-6, 4.18 ERA) and Jeremy Guthrie (9-12, 5.26 ERA) have the ball tonight in the first game of three as the Yankees look to improve on their Major League-leading wins total.

A.J. Burnett (10-8, 4.10 ERA) and David Hernandez (4-6, 4.24 ERA) go in the second game on Tuesday, with CC Sabathia (15-7, 3.56) and Jason Berken (4-11, 6.33 ERA) matching up in the finale on Wednesday — three night games under the lights in the Charm City, as the Yankees open up this seven-game road trip that also takes them to Toronto.
