Atmosphere/Character:

  • I did not feel a sense of character from Ripken Stadium. It was very "cookie cutter"-ish and very forgettable. It's a nice, clean, well-taken care of stadium, it just isn't one of those parks that sticks out in my mind.
  • I did not get to experience what the atmosphere is like during the game, since we sat through a 2 and a half hour rain delay and then gave up and went home. Unfortunately, the game did begin shortly after we left. Oh well. Next time.
