Ordinarily I would disagree with you but not on one summer day back in the 1970's. We drove down to Atlanta from Virginia to watch the Big Red Machine play two against the Braves. By about the middle of the second game my wife wanted to leave but I refused. I ended up with a painful sunburn and my wife was wilted from the heat and wouldn't speak to me all the way home (almost 350 miles).

Now I hear that the upcoming series with the Rays will be played in St. Pete with the Orioles as the home team. I've never heard of this happening before either.
The Mariners played an away series at home against the Marlins in 2011. Mariners will be visitors when they play Marlins — at Safeco Field | The Seattle Times

The Mariners also played 20 games of their 1994 home schedule on the road due to ceiling tiles that fell inside the Kingdome.

You cite a lightly attended, leisurely game that had a 'cool' mood. Your trip down memory lane, and fond Billy Martin reminiscences, are completely irrelevant.. but were probably posted to diminish, and deflect, the seriousness of the criminal siege Baltimore is under, right (?)
I'll guess you got lost on the way to the politics board. This is the baseball board where we talk about, well, baseball.

Here in Des Moines in 2008 the Iowa Cubs (AAA affiliate of the Chicago Cubs) played a game against Nashville in front of 0 fans due to flooding surrounding the stadium. Principal Park is adjacent to two rivers, so the stadium was sandbagged in.

Default White Sox Pitcher Has Brain Hemorrhage in Dugout

Didn't see this mentioned anywhere...

Danny Farquhar, Chicago White Sox pitcher, has brain hemorrhage during game

White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar was in stable but critical condition Saturday, a day after suffering a brain hemorrhage while in the dugout during a game. Farquhar passed out in the sixth inning Friday night after getting two outs against Houston. He was helped by team medical personnel and on-site EMTs, and regained consciousness before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance.

The White Sox announced that additional testing revealed the brain hemorrhage caused by a ruptured aneurysm. Farquhar was receiving treatment and being closely monitored in the neurosurgical ICU unit at Rush University Medical center.

So sad.

I still remember when Marlin's Fernandez died. I did lose interest that season after that.

MLB is a fun diversion, but when things like this happen, reality supersedes diversion.

Sad but true.

ABC's Good Morning America had a two minute seg on him just a bit ago and said after the medical procedure he had Saturday that he is still in critical condition. He's only thirty one years old, married his high school sweetheart, has three children.

Default 8k Seat Temp. Stadium To Be Built & Yankees/White Sox Game To Be Played On 8/13/20 @ 'Field of Dreams' Farm In Iowa

https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb...arm/ar-AAFxA3z



I think it's a fantastic idea, and I'm almost tempted to look into going to the game.

I've been there, and I loved it. I wasn't disappointed. But who knows....that may be because I'm such a fan of both baseball and that movie.

I heard that construction will start next week on the temporary stadium. I just hope that at some point (soon) after the game, the site will be restored to it's current state.
