Report: Orioles to compensate employees for relocated games

Wednesday May 13th, 2015

The Baltimore Orioles will compensate all of their employees for their home games that were postponed and relocated, reports Bill Baer of NBC's Hardball Talk.

The Orioles postponed two games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards last month due to riots in the city of Baltimore following the funeral of Freddie Gray. Gray was a 25-year-old who died on April 19 after suffering a severe spinal injury while in police custody.

Additionally, the team's three-game home series against the Rays later that week was moved to Tampa Bay. The Orioles played as the home team and the Rays will not move future a home series against the Orioles to Baltimore.

VERDUCCI: Will Mets' pitching be enough?

The postponed games will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on May 28 beginning at 4:05 p.m.

The Orioles host the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday.
