No One Came to the Boston Red Sox Game
There were riots, the burning and looting of buildings, the police out numbered, yep it was Boston. Folks were riled up about what they perceive to be injustices against them. Most folks have a lot of opinions about what went down but as my husband says, now that they have affected baseball, now that is just wrong.
The Boston Red Sox were slotted ot face off against The Chicago White Sox. Boston won that game with 8 runs over Chicago’s 2. With two men on, one out in the first inning, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit a three-run homer. It was the 80th home run in the history of Camden Yards to reach the usually fan-filled avenue behind right field, the 31st by an Oriole and the sixth from Davis. And no one saw it. Because of the riots and protests, the Boston Red Sox closed the game to spectators. It was out of a abundance of caution and concern for the safety of its fans and according to the players it made for strange baseball.
It was the first time that a game was played with NO spectators in the history of the MLB. History, my friends, has been made. It was the day no one came to the game.
