The museum will house all sorts of Maryland sports archives and memorabilia - from the Orioles Hall of Fame to Maryland amateur baseball, and from the Colts to the Ravens. The site will be an expansion of the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum, which is not moving but leasing the bottom two floors of Camden Station from the Maryland Stadium Authority to create a more diverse and complete museum of Baltimore and Maryland sports history.
The Orioles will be prominently displayed. There will be a feature called "Nine Innings of Orioles Baseball," which will take the team from its birth to the present day, as well as a room dedicated to the Orioles' Hall of Fame. Designers wanted to be certain that a section of the museum was designated to the Negro leagues for educational purposes, according to [Michael Gibbons].
