Many of the articles that I’ve been reading have pointed out that the multi-purpose stadium tread ended when Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles, was built in 1992.
Why I agree that Camden Yards was a historical turning point for sports venues, I disagree that it ended the trend. The past few years have shown us that it just doesn’t work financially to have a single-use stadium.
Of course Baltimore’s level of play on the field hasn’t exactly helped!
