The Baltimore Orioles will play the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday at Camden Yards in a stadium full of empty seats, the team has announced, after a night of lawlessness left more than 100 vehicles burning in the streets and hundreds of rioters in the city’s jails.
“After consultation with Major League Baseball and city and local officials, tomorrow’s game between the Orioles and the Chicago White Sox will begin at 2:05 p.m. ET and will be closed to the public,” the team announced on Tuesday afternoon, in what is believed to be a first for the city’s team.
