NEW CONCESSION AREAS

Oriole Park at Camden Yards is cashless. There are new areas where you can skip the lines, grab your food, pay and go.

There are three markets offering this service located on the main concourse. There will be cameras at these locations and customer service representatives to check ID.

You can get your food as a group or on just one card.

NEW FOOD OFFERINGS

The Orioles have a new concession deal with hospitality operator Levy. There are several new menu additions including the signature crab pretzel boule. It's a pretzel bread bowl with crab dip and cheddar jack cheese.

Also new this year, the Bmore Chicken Box. It's three hand-breaded jalapeno buttermilk brined chicken tenders, Old Bay western fries on a Hawaiian roll. You can get hot sauce as well.

The Yard Dog also makes its debut this year. Three footlong hot dogs on one footlong bun topped with crab dip, Old Bay and Old Bay potato sticks.

The Buffalo Bird Dog is a buffalo chicken tender sandwich on a bun.

There's even pretzels shaped like the O's logo this year.

The official crab chips of Camden Yards are BTI Crab Chips. BTI stands for 'Bill's Terrace Inn' in Essex. They have their own unique blend for crab chips.

And if you're in the mood for dessert, there's a roaming cart filled with all kinds of sweets, including Maryland's state dessert Smith Island Cake.

SUPERBOOK SPORTS BAR AND RESTAURANT

The SuperBook Sports Bar and Restaurant replaces Dempsey's Brew Pub this year.

SuperBook will not actually operate as a sportsbook where you can place bets. Instead, it will be a sports bar where you can place mobile bets on your phone while taking in the Orioles game and other sporting vents on their TVs.

SuperBook plans to pay homage to Rick Dempsey, the park's history and offer great food and drink as well.

PARKING

Gates open at noon. First pitch is scheduled for 3:05 p.m.

General parking is available in Lots F,G and H. There may be limited parking in Lot C. You're encouraged to buy parking in advance.
