| March 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

This week, the Baltimore Orioles, which are already allowing fans at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota at 25 percent capacity, were given the go ahead by The State of Maryland to allow up to 50 percent capacity at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. But, since the ballpark is in Baltimore City, the team will also need an attendance plan approved by Mayor Brandon M. Scott’s office and Major League Baseball.

Baltimore City currently has a 25 percent capacity limit restaurants and venues. In a statement on Tuesday, Mayor Scott said his office “will work with the Baltimore City Health Department and the Law Department to review the Governor’s executive order and determine the best path forward.”

In a statement, the Orioles said, “As always, the health and safety of our entire Birdland community remains our top priority. In accordance with Governor Hogan’s announcement yesterday, we are continuing to work with the City of Baltimore, state officials, and Major League Baseball to safely welcome fans back to Oriole Park at Camden Yards with proper social distancing guidelines. As soon as we are able, we will share our plans to re-open along with our Gameday Health & Safety protocols.”

The Orioles begin the season on April 1st, starting the first six games on the road against the Boston Red Sox and then the New York Yankees. Opening Day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards is on Thursday, April 8th at 3:05pm.
