The Orioles intend to play the final game of their series against the White Sox at 2:05 p.m. Wednesday, and it will be closed to the public but air on MASN. Coverage begins at 1:30 p.m.
Also, the three-game series against the Rays slated to begin Friday has been moved to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Orioles will serve as the “home” team and receive the gate.
The postponed games between the Orioles and White Sox this week, impacted by the rioting in the city, will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Thursday, May 28 beginning at 4:05 p.m.
“After conversations with the Orioles and local officials, we believe that these decisions are in the best interests of fan safety and the deployment of City resources,” commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.
“Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by violence in Baltimore, and everyone in our game hopes for peace and the safety of a great American city.”
