History was made today at Camden Yards in Baltimore. The first game in the history of Major League Baseball played with no fans in attendance as the Baltimore Orioles hosted the Chicago White Sox. The teams had their first two games cancelled because of the rioting in Baltimore, but MLB chose to play today's game without fans. When Chris Davis blasted a Jeff Samardzija pitch over the right field fence, there was no roar of the crowd as the Orioles first baseman rounded the bases.
Baltimore catcher Caleb Joseph had some fun when he signed autographs for the invisible fans in attendance and television announcer Gary Thorne did his best golf announcer impression when compared the game's setting to the calm of the The Masters golf tournament.

About 100 fans gathered on Camden Street to peer into the empty stadium and watch Baltimore crush the White Sox today 8-2, but the quiet setting was the big story in the game.
