The first pitch for the Orioles home opener against the Boston Red Sox is set for 3:05pm on Thursday April 8th and while everyone is excited for fans to return to Camden Yards, the Orioles organization is taking every precaution to welcome fans back safely.
To start, Camden Yards will be totally cashless for the upcoming MLB season. There will be two "reverse ATM" machines that will help exchange cash for cards that can be used to purchase everything inside the park such as concessions and merchandise. Keeping with the paperless theme, tickets will be 100% digital this year as well. Fans will be required to show their ticket on their phone upon entry to Camden Yards.
That's not all, the mask mandate will be strictly enforced at all times while inside the stadium unless eating or drinking, and fans are strongly encouraged to take advantage of mobile ordering via the the MLB Ballpark App or designated QR codes throughout the ballpark. This will allow fans to pick up their concessions when ready and avoid standing in lines.
Per Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott's order, Camden Yards is permitted to run at 25% capacity, or about 11,000 fans to start off the season. Let's go O's!
