Bal­ti­more Ori­oles In a sto­ried sta­dium, cheer­ing the boys of sum­mer

Don’t tell Bal­ti­more­ans that base­ball’s “just a game.” For many here, it bor­ders on an ob­ses­sion. Credit a his­toric but high-tech sta­dium, three world cham­pi­onships and leg­endary play­ers. Six of the last, in­clud­ing Cal Rip­ken Jr. and Brooks Robin­son, now stand here as larger-than-life bronze stat­ues. What­ever the score, fans cheer their team and cher­ish tra­di­tions like bel­low­ing “O!” when it’s time to sing “The Star-Span­gled Ban­ner,” penned by Fran­cis Scott Key from a ship in the har­bor just a fast­ball away.
