In 1992, the Orioles moved from Memorial Stadium to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. 

Camden Yards was one of the first ballparks of its kind, spawning other retro-designed major league ballparks over the next 20 years. The stadium was also the site of the the 1993 All-Star Game. 

The park has been named the best ballpark in the MLB for the last two years. If you've ever watched a game from inside the park, you might have noticed one of these oddities.
