At Camden Yards in Baltimore, The Orioles will play, The White Sox from Chicago Their opponents for today. But players will not hear the cheers Of all their rooting fans. For ticket holders, refunds wait, A crimp put in their plans. ‘Cause Baltimore’s in riot mode And so the call was made To ban the fans but for the teams, Their game won’t be delayed. They’ll bat and run and steal and slide To silent empty seats, With no one there to cheer or boo Or care which team defeats. This situation’s a surprise And many just don’t buy it, But emptiness is better than A predetermined riot.

Ilene, cute poem to help deal with that serious crisis.. And sadly with a trial coming I don't think we've seen the worst of it!
