“I am glad, that I am lost, in my own little world of baseball.”
This week is Orioles week with our podcast featuring the Baltimore Orioles being released on Friday, September 9th. Ed Kasputis will be interviewing two great guests about the magic of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Ed will interview fellow Baseball PhD Anthony Lorenzo (who has also visited all 30 current Major League Ball Parks). You’ll hear how Anthony found the ultimate prize during a baseball road trip to Baltimore.
Then Ed will interview singer and song writer, Jason Siemer. Jason’s first job was with the Orioles at the age of 21. In his spare time, he wrote the Oriole ballad, A World of Orioles Baseball. Imagine Jason playing this song to his boss who then instructed him to put the song to video in time to be played on the Oriole Park Jumbotron for opening day.
In this episode, we first review what to do and see in Baltimore. Next we get a sneak peak at Target Field which will open on April 12, 2010. Gina Leo Stingley from Populous walks us through the features of this state of the art urban ballpark.
