THE EMPTY BALTIMORE ORIOLES STADIUM



Written by Jack Blocker

Following the recent civil unrest in Baltimore, the local baseball team, the Orioles, had to play to an entirely empty stadium. Gates remained closed to the public so police and other officials would not be taken away from their duties in other parts of the city.

As a result, the Orioles experienced what it's really like to have no fans - if you don't include the ones who peered through the gates. A few players have noted the jarring echo that rung round the stadium whenever there was a hit. The day yielded a load of surreal photos, all of which are slightly unsettling when you think about how they came to be.

The Orioles won, by the way.
