As I mentioned in one of my previous articles, the riots have had a major effect on the community of Baltimore in more than one way.
It has also been bad for the MLB community.
That’s right, it was the first game in MLB history that was not open to the public. Although there were obviously some people in the ballpark, technically, the attendance was the lowest ever.
The reason that the commissioner did this was to value the protection of the fans.
It was surely a strange day in MLB history. The players seemed to adapt well to it. And the fans of Baltimore also reacted well to it. There were actually fans that waited outside the gates of the stadium, during the game. They were happy when Chris Davis hit a home run, as they cheered from outside the park.
Hey, someone should get that ball, it’s probably still there.
