The Baltimore Orioles will have an unusual box score tomorrow—fan attendance will be zero. The league today announced that the team will play the White Sox tomorrow afternoon, but the game will be closed to the public, reports AP. The violence after Freddie Gray's funeral previously forced the postponement of games yesterday and today. Baltimore is supposed to play a home stand against Tampa Bay starting Friday, but that's been shifted to a stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida. (The mayor is taking flak for her handling of the riots.)
