If 2020 wasn’t weird enough already, it’s going to feel even more weird watching the Orioles bat in the top half of an inning at Camden Yards.
Due to the cancellation of last week’s home-and-home series scheduled in Baltimore and Miami last week, the series was amended to be played at Camden Yards only. The first two games, including the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, were home games for the Orioles.
But in the last two games of the series, the Orioles will play as the “road” team. That’s led to some weird circumstances at Camden Yards.

Well, if you were hoping to see the #Orioles wear their road grays at Camden Yards with Miami being the "home" team for the nightcap, you'll be disappointed.

The Orioles are wearing their home white uniforms, and are still in their home dugout, but they’ll be classified as the road team for the second game of the doubleheader. They lost the first game of the doubleheader 1-0.
Give the Orioles credit, they’re going out of their way to make the Marlins feel as much like the home team as humanly possible.
