According to Rich Dubroff of baltimorebaseball.com, Chris Davis isn’t too fond of playing another game without fans.
With more and more states and sporting events being canceled, or changed to be played without fans present, there’s a growing fear that games will have to be played without fans in attendance. As it turns out, those fears are also held in the Orioles locker room.
“We don’t even want to go down that road again,” Davis told Dubroff. “Hopefully, it doesn’t become more of an issue that it has been.”
Davis and the Orioles have already played a game without fans, in 2015 against the White Sox. He homered in the first inning and the Orioles beat the White Sox 8-2. In the aftermath of the Baltimore riots, the Orioles played with an official paid attendance of zero against the White Sox on April 29.
Major League Baseball has recently closed the clubhouse to the media, joining the NHL, NBA and MLS in restricting access due to fears of coronavirus.
With just over two weeks until Opening Day, the potential for more cancellations and changes to the schedule only appears to be growing.
