During a game between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards on Saturday, protests in the city of Baltimore caused Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to urge fans at the stadium to remain there for the time being.
Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun tweeted out a picture of Mayor Rawlings-Blake's message that appeared on the Camden Yards video scoreboard:
The gates to leave the stadium appear to have been locked at some point, as Encina later confirmed that the gates were reopened.
The Associated Press (via ABC 2 News) reported thousands of people were lining the streets near Camden Yards for a Freddie Gray rally that eventually turned hostile.
Gray died last Sunday after suffering a severe spinal cord injury while detained by police. The incident is under investigation, per CNN's Miguel Marquez and Steve Almasy.
The Red Sox-Orioles game was still going on at the time of the announcement from the mayor. Boston tied the game at three in the top of the ninth inning and took the lead in the top of the 10th on a home run by Xander Bogaerts. But the Orioles put in two more on a David Lough home run in the bottom of that inning for the walk-off 5-4 win.
