The Fanless Game

Due to safety concerns following several days of unrest in Baltimore, the public was not allowed at Wednesday's meeting between the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles' 8-2 victory marked the first time in Major League Baseball history that a game was played without fans in attendance.
