Need to find an old tape: Tribute to Baltimore's Memorial Stadium
September 15, 2006 6:34 PM   Subscribe

In 1991 when the Baltimore Orioles left Memorial Stadium, WBAL released a cassette tape of a tribute to the stadium. Hosted by a Dan Roderick, it was a sentimental journey through Memorial Stadiums past, complete with old radio broadcasts, readings from Field of Dreams and The Natural, and interviews. I had the tape, but lost it recently in a move and really want to track it down. Anybody heard of this tape or have an idea where I can find a copy or MP3 of it? I'd be forever indebted.

It was called like 900 E 33rd St. It started with a jingle for "The Kids campaign" on WBAL. It had two sides. That's about all I know right know, other than that it was awesome.

Wow, AskMe comes through again. Now that the question has been resolved, I have to say that the one time I saw a game at Memorial Stadium, it seemed to me a lousy place to watch baseball. But as a Mets fan who's seen far too many games at the wretched Shea Stadium, I'm in no position to point fingers.

The affordable seats at Memorial Stadium were far, far better than their equivalents are at Camden. Thus you had real fans there, not just the 'company-seats' crowd.
