The White Sox are playing the Orioles tomorrow, in Baltimore.
There won't be much of a crowd -
no fans are allowed.
It's some kind of safety thing because of the riots in the city of Edgar Allen Poe. Apparently it has never happened before in the history of major league baseball.
Things are out of hand
when fans are banned.
I wonder what Poe would have thought of this.
Once upon a baseball season, having lost all trace of reason,
I sneaked in to see the Orioles play as they have played before.
While I watched them, barely waking, suddenly there came a breaking,
As of someone boldly taking, hatchets to the stadium door.
"'Tis some rioters," I muttered, "breaking though the stadium door -
It's a mess, in Baltimore."
