Game #575 – MD1 – 8/22/92

The first ‘game board’ photo, taken at site MD1 at the start of the 8th inning of an Indians-Orioles game, on the front concourse of a dormant Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The May 26, 1978 contest was played in the afternoon during a trip my friend Steve P and I had taken to Baltimore to see a pair of August games at Camden Yards, the new home of the real-life Orioles.

In the SP78 match-up, the Steve-led Orioles clipped the Indians 4-3, in a game that ended in controversy; O’s second baseman Billy Smith was ejected for using an illegal bat, one inning after sparking a four-run Baltimore rally with an RBI single. It was the only game played during the trip, and the first of only three photos taken of the game. To read about the trip and game highlights, click here.
