The Baltimore Orioles’ stadium, Camden Yards, has a capacity of 45,971.
That’s a big number Tuesday because the team just announced all those seats will be empty Wednesday. The game against the White Sox will still be played, but it’ll be closed to the public.
This raises a whole bunch of questions:
What happens to all the foul balls?
Are they still gonna have the organist play? It’s going to echo a lot.
And more seriously, what about all the people who work there? Are the ushers and concessions folks and the rest going to get paid?
