With a scheduling quandary at hand and the potential for more unrest in Baltimore, the Orioles and Major League Baseball announced extreme measures:
Playing a game in front of no fans, and moving three more games out of the city.
MLB announced on Tuesday afternoon that the Orioles-White Sox game scheduled for Wednesday will be played at 2 p.m. ET at Camden Yards – but the game is closed to the public.
In addition, a weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays will be moved to Tropicana Field in St. Peterburg, Fla. – although the Orioles will be designated the home team.
Monday and Tuesday’s postponed games will be made up as part of a twi-night doubleheader at Camden Yards on May 28.
All six games were thrown into flux after civil unrest related to the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody. It was further complicated when Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake imposed a curfew that lasts through the weekend.
