Baltimore To See Pro Baseball First

It’s believed that this is a first for major league baseball:

“After consultation with Major League Baseball and city and local officials, tomorrow’s game between the Orioles and Chicago White Sox will be closed to the public,” the team said in a statement. “The Orioles will also play their three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays, scheduled for May 1-3, at Tropicana Field in Florida, while serving as the home team.” The announcement came one day after Orioles executive John Angelos, the son of team owner Peter Angelos, responded to criticism of the protestors with a lengthy statement that pointed towards “a far bigger picture for poor Americans in Baltimore and everywhere…living under an ever-declining standard of living and suffering at the butt end of an ever-more militarized and aggressive surveillance state.”
