Since its 1986 establishment by the General Assembly, the Maryland Stadium Authority has touched every region of the state from cities and towns to campuses large and small. MSA has partnered with other agencies, governments, and the private sector to turn project proposals into major entertainment and education facilities and economic development opportunities.
The very first of these projects came to fruition in 1992, when Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened to widespread acclaim. Twenty years later, the ballpark that forever changed the game saw a full season of celebrations, with new features, old friends, and a playoff run that captivated the region.
While MSA has taken on myriad assignments throughout the state, our commitment to maintaining Camden Yards to the highest standards of structure and safety has always been paramount. These improvements can be seen in this Annual Report, along with many community activities and major events that bring millions of people to our campus every year.
From the Ravens thrilling championship to the Orioles electrifying season, this has been an amazing 20th anniversary year for us at Camden Yards. As we celebrate these achievements, we look forward to new challenges in 2013 and beyond.
