The Orioles will play the White Sox in a game closed to the public due to Baltimore protests

The first two games of the Baltimore Orioles' series with the Chicago White Sox have been cancelled due to protests over the death of Freddie Gray that have shut down the city of Baltimore. Those two games will be made up in a double-header to be played on May 28.

Tomorrow's game will be played at 2:05 p.m., but will be closed to the public. That means when the Orioles and White Sox take the field on Wednesday afternoon, there will be no fans in the stands in what will likely be a surreal scene.

As the release from the team states above, the Orioles will also play their next series, that was supposed to be in Baltimore, in Tampa Bay as a result of the protests but will remain the home team despite playing in the Rays' stadium.
