Baltimore Municipal Stadium (as you can well see), is not a baseball stadium… nor was it ever intended to be. The Orioles however would play part of 6 seasons in this stadium, after tragedy saw their beloved 16,000 seat wooden ballpark, Oriole Park V... come burning to the ground in the middle of their 1944 championship run. Oriole Park V had been home to the Federal League's Baltimore Terrapins before the Minor League version of the Orioles took the stadium over in 1916.
