With protests and riots taking place in the heart of Baltimore, the Baltimore Orioles organization and Major League Baseball made the decision to make adjustments to Wednesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox.
Tomorrow’s game against the White Sox will be played at 2:05 P.M. but will be completely closed to the public. This is the first game in Major League Baseball history that will be played without any fans present.
MLB made this announcement Tuesday afternoon and posted the following statement to Twitter.
