On April 29, 2015, something truly strange occurred – for the only time in the history of Major League Baseball was played in front of a crowd of zero. In response to city-wide tensions following the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25 year-old man who died in policy custody, the Baltimore Orioles – Chicago White Sox game was played in front of record-setting tiny crowd. While Gray’s death was certainly unnecessary and tragic, the baseball game came to demonstrate just how widespread the results of the resulting violence were – impacting every aspect of life in Baltimore, Maryland. The Orioles won the game 8 – 2. For you Orioles fans out there (like me!), yes, they played “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” during the seventh-inning stretch.
