After the Freddie Gray riots broke out in Baltimore, it was announced that the public would not be allowed into Camden Yards for the Orioles and White Sox game on April 29. With no fans at the stadium, the broadcasted game on TV was eerie, devoid of crowds, cheers, or the smell of hot dogs. According to CBS, it was the first time in baseball history that there was a game with an official attendance at zero. A handful of die-hard Orioles fans still went to the stadium to stand outside the gates, hooting and hollering from afar. The game ended with the Orioles winning with a score of 8-2, and many still reeling from the bizarre experience.
