Silent Baseball Game in Camden Yards

So yesterday was quite a different day for a baseball game at Camden Yards. The Orioles hosted the White Sox in a game with no fans in attendance. Not that this is anything you probably don't already know, says Captain Obvious, but I just felt the need to comment on it. How weird that must have been for the players and for Chris "Crush" Davis to hit a home run to a silent stadium, all but a few smiles from balconies and people by the gates to cheer on their beloved O's. I just hope that the unrest in their city will some how bring the community back together soon and find ways for both sides of  the police and neighbors to get along and crime to go down.  That is more important than a baseball game, but baseball does have a healing effect on fans I think. Just my 2 cents on the story.
