Orioles to play Wednesday game in closed Camden Yards
Tuesday April 28th, 2015

The Baltimore Orioles will play Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at 2:05 p.m. ET without fan admittance at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the team announced Tuesday.

Tuesday's game between the Orioles and White Sox was postponed, as was the first game of a three-game series on Monday night because of safety concerns in Baltimore related to the protests that have emerged following the funeral of Freddie Gray. Gray, a 25-year-old Baltimore man, died on April 19 after suffering a severe spinal injury while in police custody. Six Baltimore police officers have been suspended pending a probe into the incident.

Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued a week-long, city-wide curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. ET on Monday.

The Orioles also announced that the three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays beginning Friday will be played at the Rays' Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., instead of Oriole Park. The Orioles will play as the home team.

According to Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times, the Rays will not move future home series against the Orioles to Baltimore.

Monday's and Tuesday's postponed games will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on May 28 beginning at 4:05 p.m. Fans who purchased tickets to the games on April 29, May 1, May 2 or May 3 can exchange their tickets for any remaining Orioles home game this season on a "dollar for dollar" basis.
