What an Empty Orioles Game at Camden Yards Looks Like

Screen Shot 2015-04-29 at 3.40.55 PMFor security reasons, the Baltimore Orioles are playing a game in an empty stadium today. The Birds jumped out to a quick lead, with Chris Davis crushing a three-run home run onto Eutaw Street in the first inning. And only the media was there to see it.

It’s being called the ghost game, but reports indicate all the usual baseball trappings are in place, sans crowd. There’s an announcer, a 7th Inning Stretch and all the rest. After all, baseball is a game of routine. Caleb Joseph even signed some autographs.

And Chris Davis offered up a souvenir.

Update: Orioles win! Final score is 8-2. The game wasn’t crowded, but it was quick. The total game time was about two hours. And for those keeping score at home, official attendance was 0.
