The Baltimore Orioles played to an empty stadium Wednesday after unrest in the city led the team to close the game to the public.
As previously reported, the team delayed the first two games in a series against the White Sox to a May 28 doubleheader, after closing the stadium during riots following the funeral of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody. Wednesday’s game went forward, but without any fans in the stands. Some tried to get a view of the game nevertheless, as reported by TIME senior writer Sean Gregory, who was on the scene:
