People that complain about Interleague play are lame. How awesome was it to see the Dodgers come to Camden Yards this weekend?
Answer: Really awesome, but mostly because the O’s took two out of three.
Don’t agree with me? Well you’re in the minority because 113,324 people came to Oriole Park over the weekend to watch the O’s take on LA. On Sunday, 41,265 were in attendance.
I went to Friday’s rainout, then came back for game one of the double-header on Saturday. While the crowd was light, I was impressed with the turnout given how quickly fans were asked to get back to the Yard after the previous night’s game was postponed.
In nine games at Camden Yards this season, the Orioles have had crowds of over 40,000 four times. I spent a lot of time complaining about the lack of support for the O’s last season and I’m happy to blog about larger crowds supporting them in 2013.
