2015: The Baltimore Orioles play a home game against the Chicago White Sox in front of zero fans at Oriole Park at Camden Yards over safety concerns due to protests and rioting in the wake of Freddie Gray's death. Gray, 25, was arrested for possessing a switchblade knife April 12, 2015, outside a housing project on Baltimore's west side and died a week later in the hospital from a severe spinal cord injury he received while in police custody.
