In praise of the hometown crowd | Roar From 34
A great article on the crowds at Camden Yards of late. I was in the stands when 30,000 people chanted "FREDDY! FREDDY! FREDDY!" and it was awesome. I wasn't in the stands last night for the sellout, but the crowd energy was apparent from TV. Makes me so happy.
