For years the Red Sox fans have been invading the best ballpark in America, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and referring to its comfy confines as “Fenway Park South.” Well, no more.
The beginning of OPACY’s re-beautification process began on September 28, 2011 and continues whenever the Orioles face the Red Sox.
Currently, the O’s are north at the 100-year-old Fenway Park facing the Sox in a three game series. Baltimore won game one on Monday 8-6 in 10 innings. The Orioles are now 4-0 this season against the Red Sox in Boston. They’ve won six straight at the Fens dating back to last season and are 5-2 against the Sox in 2012.
Red Sox star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez went 0-for-5 in game one and struck out against Orioles first baseman Chris Davis the last time the Orioles and Red Sox met in Boston.
It’s no doubt that the Orioles are getting comfortable playing in Boston. The Baltimore Sun’s Dan Connolly tweeted on Tuesday that he saw “lots of men wearing Orioles shirts” on his flight to Boston.
Is Fenway becoming “Camden Yards North”?
