The other day, the Baltimore Orioles got lots of positive press by announcing that stadium staffers would be compensated for wages lost while a state of emergency was declared in the city. Two home games were canceled, another was played at an empty Camden Yards, and three others were moved to Tampa Bay as anger over…
Welcome to Grim Yelp Reviews, a new regular feature where we share people’s worst experiences at the worst places. This week: sportsball.
Garrett Baldwin lives three blocks from Camden Yards. He wanted to go to the Orioles-White Sox game, but like every other civilian fan, he couldn’t get in. So he paid $250 for a room at the nearby Hilton.
Last night’s and tonight’s Orioles-White Sox games were postponed due to the ongoing unrest in Baltimore. Tomorrow’s game will be moved up to the afternoon—and closed to the public. It’s going to be weird as shit.

A few years ago, two men went to an Orioles game at Camden Yards. The game withstood a prolonged rain delay but was eventually postponed.
