Posted: Updated:
BALTIMORE, Md. (KWWL) -

The Baltimore Orioles will finally get back on the field Wednesday, hosting the White Sox at Camden Yards, but the stadium will sit mostly empty. Due to safety concerns amid the high tensions and recent riots in Baltimore, game will be closed to the public according to a statement released by the team.

In addition to Wednesday game, the Orioles will play a 3-game series with the Tampa Bay on the road at Tropicana Field, the Rays home stadium. That series this weekend was originally set to be played in Baltimore. The Orioles will still be considered the home team.

No decisions have been made for contests scheduled after this week.
