Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

Welcome back to the Orioles Buzz and this week’s ‘Where in the Yard?’ - And first of all, things always seem a little sweeter the morning after an Orioles’ win, don’t they?

This week, even though the O’s won’t return home for another week or so, we get to return to the Yard early to test your eyes for all things Orioles. I’ll even go out on a limb and say that I think this week’s image is a hard one - though you O’s fans always amaze me with how well you know your own Oriole Park.

So take a look at the picture below and let me know what we’re looking at this week and where it’s located in or around Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

If I’m right, and this week’s image is escaping most of you, don’t worry, we’ll start releasing hints and handing out some bonus points along the way.

Good luck O’s fans!


Update: Chris in Baltimore, Lauren, Jeremy from Cumberland, Josh Sroka, and Charles B from SP all got at least part of the puzzle, but it looks like I’ve stumped a lot of you...

Hint: The man in this week’s image has plenty of company from his seat in the Yard - He watches over his section of Oriole Park along with Eli Jacobs and Jack Daniels throughout the season...

*Remember that you can submit more than one guess, and I’ll likely award you some points for identifying either the what or the where...Good Luck again O’s fans!

Bob St, LegendCB5, Dom, Avi M, Roscoe, Jeff in York, Oliver, John W. also have it now as well!

Answer: Though a good handful of you figured out this week’s ‘Where in the Yard?’ image, I still say it was one of the harder ones I’ve posted for you lately - So congrats to those of you who guessed correctly...

The Babe Ruth plaque, located on the brick wall beside the Jack Daniels stand on Eutaw Street and around the corner from the sign for Eli Jacobs Plaza (the flag court) reads in full:
