The field was quiet, the fans non-existent as the Baltimore Orioles took on the Chicago White Sox at Camden Field on Wednesday.

Visitors were shut out of the stadium amid fears of spill over violence from riots in the city.

On April 12, Freddie Gray, 25, was shot by police, resulting in spinal and larynx injuries.  He died in hospital a week later.

Protestors in Baltimore became violent,looting and damaging six police cars.

The Orioles beat the White Sox 8-2 as the lonely game went viral across social media.
