Camden Yards: Yankees Fans’ Summer Getaway

25 Aug

Marc Carig, who covers the New York Yankees for The Athletic, has some fine writing here observing the Pinstripes playing at Camden Yards;

Yankees fans have historically treated Camden Yards like a summer cottage, their home away from the city. The effect has only been amplified now that the Orioles are a stripped-down skeleton of what they had been on Opening Day, long before fading a few light years out of first place. After Voit cracked his second homer, chants of “Luuuuke” broke out in the stands.
