Oriole Park at Camden Yards will receive a series of upgrades before the 2017 season, according to recently uncovered documents.
The Baltimore Orioles and the Maryland Stadium Authority are planning a slew changes to the ballpark for next season, addressing several areas of the facility. Most notably, Oriole Park at Camden Yards will now be equipped with LED lighting, as Musco Sports Lighting has obtained the contract for that project.
Improvements will also affect a few other areas of the ballpark, including the playing surface. More from The Baltimore Sun:
» Replacement of the heat trace system at the ballpark. The contract was signed in August with Ariosa and Co., a Maryland company. The cost is not to exceed $469,500.
The playing surface at Camden Yards is also being replaced — the first time since 2008 that the grass is being swapped out.
Another upgrade The Sun reported on was a plan to replace carpeting throughout the club level, though no contract had been signed as of last week. Oriole Park at Camden Yards is preparing for its 25th anniversary.
