With Opening Day of the 2012 season less than two months away, the Orioles today announced the official launch of CamdenYards20.com, a website designed in conjunction with Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), that celebrates the 20th anniversary season of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, The Ballpark that Forever Changed Baseballâ„¢.
CamdenYards20.com features all things Oriole Park , including a look back at the greatest moments of the past 20 seasons and a behind-the-scenes peek into the baseball landmark. Highlights of the new site include videos of Opening Day in 1992, a written history of the park and its improvements over the years, and photo galleries of Camden Yards featuring everything from ballpark construction to celebrity visitors.
One of the highlights of the new site is the Eutaw Street Home Run Tracker, an interactive map featuring details and video of all home runs to land on the historic Eutaw Street since the ballpark opened.
Orioles fans are encouraged to use the hashtag #CamdenYards20 throughout the season to talk about the 20th anniversary of the ballpark on Twitter. CamdenYards20.com will aggregate all of the tweets and conversation and display it on the front page.
More features will be added regularly throughout the coming weeks, including interviews with architects who were involved in the design of Camden Yards, an interactive timeline of the events that shaped the past two decades, special 20th Anniversary ticket offers, and the Camden Yards Classics Countdown, an unveiling of the 20 most exciting games in Oriole Park history.
