Orioles Release Statement About “Progress” on Its Plans to “Revitalize” Camden Yards Complex

| July 13, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Orioles quest to get a new lease at Oriole Park at Camden Yards continues as its current two-year lease expires on December 31st. But, in a joint statement issued today by Orioles Chair and Managing Partner John Angelos and Maryland Governor Moore, the two parties cited “progress.”

The current two-year lease follows the initial 30-year lease which expired at the end of 2021.

The team is eligible for $600 million in state bonds for improvements at Oriole Park at Camden Yards if a stadium lease extension is signed.

Below is the joint statement issued today:

The last four months have been exciting on and off the field. Baltimore City and the State of Maryland all have Orioles fever. We’ve laid the groundwork for success, and progress is also being made on our vision to expand and revitalize the Camden Yards campus.

We are determined to make it happen, and soon.

What comes next for the Camden Yards campus must serve our entire community and the city as a whole. From the ballpark and surrounding neighborhoods to Harborplace and the Inner Harbor, we are committed to making the downtown corridor a premier destination that benefits Baltimore and Maryland residents year-round.

We have shared ideals to create a thriving and inclusive Baltimore, not just for the Orioles, but for all those who call it home.

This year at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, SuperBook Bar & Restaurant opened at the former Dempsey’s Brew Pub, Fanatics took over the team stores, and Levy became the new food and beverage partner.

The team additionally completed a $3.5-million project before the start of the 2022 season. This included pushing back the left wall, raising the height of the wall, and removing several rows of seats.

In January, the Ravens and Maryland Stadium Authority agreed to a 15-year lease extension for the team at M&T Bank Stadium, which sits adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. This includes two five-year options to extend.
