Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

If you’re thinking it feels like a long time since the O’s have brought fans of Birdland together at the Yard, you’re not the only one. The Birds embarked on a ten-game road trip following the completion of a nine-game homestand against the Marlins, Nats, and A’s that ended on July 1.

With the All-Star break upon us, it’ll be a few more days before we’re back at the Yard for Orioles baseball, but we make sure to visit Oriole Park here in the Orioles Buzz every Monday morning with the weekly ‘Where in the Yard?’

This week, you’ll need to give me two pieces of info in order to take home a full point. I need to know (1.) What we’re looking at in the photo (the gimme) and (2.) Where this photo was taken from in order to get this particular vantage point of a familiar sight inside Oriole Park.

Good Luck O’s fans, and enjoy the All-Star Break!


Update: Chris in Baltimore was our first O’s fan to guess correctly again this week, so congrats to Chris, who also went so far as to guess (correctly) what day this photo was taken on - impressive!

In addition to Chris, we can add Wes in York, Jeremy from Cumberland, Zevi L, Eddie S, Brandt (O’s fan), Scotty B, Domenic, Heathir, Amy, Lauren, Charles B from SP, Bob St, Oliver, Avi M., and Starlalove to the list as well...

And Roscoe, you have most of it, but you’re a little too far away for where the photo was taken...

Answer: One of my favorite views of the Yard, this image captures an elevated view of Eutaw Street from the skywalk that connects the Warehouse to the Club Level at Oriole Park.

This particular picture was taken on Opening Day of this year (as a handful of you noticed), and the way the light plays across the length of the Warehouse, leading your eye down Eutaw Street, filled with O’s fans, to the Bromo Seltzer tower on the skyline gets me every time. There are some things the won-loss record and stats lines just can’t capture...How can you not love it here?
