BALTIMORE - The Orioles will reimburse hourly employees at Camden Yards who lost wages during the week of April 27 after riots broke out in Baltimore following the funeral of Freddie Gray.
The Orioles postponed two games against the White Sox because of the unrest; those games will be made up as part of doubleheader May 28. The series finale against Chicago was played at Camden Yards in front of no fans.
A three-game home series against the Rays from May 1-3 was relocated to St. Petersburg, Fla.
“Due to the extraordinary circumstances that led to several canceled or rescheduled games, the Orioles organization will compensate all hourly employees for hours that would have been ordinarily worked,” the Orioles said in a letter to employees.
