The cops were called because the Orioles' practice was too loud

Friday February 27th, 2015

The Orioles hold their spring training in Sarasota, Florida, where 30 percent of the population is over the age of 65. They must have interrupted someone's mid-afternoon nap with their fly ball drills on Friday.

It might sound like just a bunch of white noise, but it's actually the sound of Orioles fans reacting to Delmon Young's game-winning double in Game 2 of the ALDS last year, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the idea was to teach the players to communicate when it's difficult to hear each other.
