The Meaning of an Empty Baltimore Baseball Stadium

Stuff Black People Don’t Like

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh… people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.” – Terence Mann, Field of Dreams

Due to the black insurrection in 65 percent black Baltimore (and the inability of the black elected/appointed government in Baltimore to guarantee the safety of primarily white suburban fans going to the game), the April 29th Major League Baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox was played in an entirely empty stadium.

    A scene from the empty stadium game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox: empty because the safety of the primarily white fans who would have attended could not be guaranteed in a city experiencing a black insurrection

Fans weren’t allowed to attend, because of the black insurrection being waged in the streets of Baltimore… the same city where Francis Scott Key long ago penned the Star Spangled Banner (the United States National Anthem).

When Rush Limbaugh wasn’t blaming “Democrats” for the madness in 65 percent black Baltimore (strangely, Austin, Seattle, Portland, Denver, and the entire state of Vermont are doing just fine…), he made a very profound point about the empty stadium game in Baltimore:

That’s right, my friends.  Baltimore is going to pay tribute to gangs and community organizers and freelance thugs today.  The Baltimore Orioles will play at Camden Yards without fans because it’s too dangerous.  You know how much economic impact a baseball game, a baseball season has in Baltimore that’s being shut down today?  It’s incredible, the economic impact of a home game for the Baltimore Orioles, and it’s just gonna be wiped out.

Because they don’t have the courage to let fans in, because they don’t think they can control the riffraff.  This is unprecedented.  According to John Thorn, the official historian for Major League Baseball, this will be a first.  There has never been a game played before an empty stadium. The previous low record for attendance happened on September 28, 1882, for a game in Worcester, Massachusetts.  The lowest attended game was then, and 1882 is back in the days of the founding of the game.

Sorry Mr. Limbaugh, Democrats haven’t “wrought” anything: it’s entirely the fault of blacks.

April 29, Baltimore: In the background, skyscrapers built by white people for a much different civilization than the one responsible with forcing Major League Baseball to have an empty stadium game...

Entirely (well, and conservatives refusing to admit the reality of racial differences and Republicans refusing to promote the interests of the overwhelmingly white people who vote them into office…).

A sell-out game at Camden Yards in Baltimore has a net economic impact of $3 million, meaning the cancelled games because of black insurrection cost the city tens of millions.

It’s obvious most people STILL don’t understand the significance of the empty stadium game on April 29th in Baltimore.

SBPDL invites you to leave your favorite memories of attending a Major League Baseball with your parents, grandparents, and family in the comments section, and also share your thoughts on what the EMPTY STADIUM game means.

To me, it’s the stunning denouement of the American Experiment in equality…
