Orioles to Host White Sox in an Empty Camden Yards Tomorrow Afternoon UPDATED
by

For the past two nights, the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox have been unable to play baseball due to unrest in Baltimore. The two games will be made up in a doubleheader on May 28th.

The weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays will be moved to St. Pete.

However, tomorrow afternoon’s game will proceed as scheduled, but no one will be admitted into Camden Yards.

The Orioles and White Sox will play in front of an empty ballpark.

Adam Jones could hit a home run tomorrow and the only sound heard will be the crack of the bat.

The only other precedent I can think of where a major sporting event was played in front of an empty stadium were the Davis Cup tennis matches back in 2009 involving Israel in Malmo, Sweden due to anti-Israel protests which Swedish authorities would break out into violence. Ah, yes good old anti-Semitism rearing its ugly head. 

The circumstances aside, tennis matches are usually played in relative quiet. There is always noise in a ballpark. Tomorrow afternoon will be the strangest game the members of the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox ever play.

UPDATE: The Orioles scored six runs in the first inning off Chisox hurler Jeff Samardzija highlighted by a three run dinger by Chris Davis. Baltimore would win the game 8-2. There were about a dozen or so fans gathered outside one of the gates of Camden Yards. 

The game took 2 hours and 3 minutes. Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon were saying that the game was so quick because there were no fans for whom the players to show off their wares. I disagree. The game went quick because both teams want to get the hell out of Baltimore.
