The White Sox and Orioles will play Wednesday’s game at Camden Yards at 1:05 p.m. CT and it will be closed to the public, the Orioles announced Tuesday. The decision was made after consulting Major League Baseball and Baltimore city officials.

UPDATES: The scene in Baltimore

The White Sox and Orioles postponed games Monday and Tuesday due to the ongoing rioting in the city near the ballpark, and those games will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on May 28.

The Orioles are also planning to move their weekend series beginning Friday against the Rays to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. Baltimore will be the home team.
