BALTIMORE, Md. —The Maryland Stadium Authority, Baltimore Orioles and Governor Wes Moore finalized a memorandum of understanding on Tuesday that will keep the Orioles in Baltimore for at least 30 years, modernize facility operations at the best price for Maryland taxpayers, and boost private sector development to revitalize downtown Baltimore City and create more opportunity for all.

U.S. Senator Ben Cardin released the following statement on the deal:

“As a life-long Orioles fan, it’s exciting to learn that Governor Moore, the Maryland Stadium Authority and Baltimore Orioles negotiated a quality agreement that keeps the Orioles in Baltimore City,” said U.S. Senator Ben Cardin. “The O’s and Camden Yards are core to Baltimore’s developing downtown entertainment district and now will continue to bring Marylanders together for decades to come. Keeping the Orioles in Baltimore City is vital to Maryland’s growth and future development. This 30-year partnership between the state and Baltimore Orioles is an investment in Maryland and our city. Go O’s!”
