BALTIMORE (AP) - The Sports Legends Museum in Baltimore has closed down after failing to reach a new lease agreement with the Maryland Stadium Authority.

The Baltimore Sun (https://bsun.md/1PaSfCk ) reports the museum, which is located adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, will close immediately.

Mike Gibbons, who is the executive director of the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation, says the museum will look for a new location. The foundation runs the Sports Legends and Babe Ruth birthplace museums.

Gibbons says the one-year lease proposal by the stadium authority wasn’t a financially viable option for them.

The museum featured exhibits of the Orioles, the Ravens and Baltimore icons such as Johnny Unitas.

Michael Frenz, executive director of the stadium authority, says the state is looking for interested developers to move into the space.
