One year ago today: Baltimore riots force least attended baseball game in history

Last year's Baltimore riots, which will take years for the troubled city to recover from, forced the cancellation of the first two games of a Baltimore Orioles-Chicago White Sox series. The third game was played--but because of security concerns no fans were allowed into Camden Yards. Zero was the official attendance--the lowest figure in 140 years of Major League Baseball and a record that will never be broken.

The O's beat the South Siders in the match-up. And in an ironic twist Baltimore is hosting the Sox again this weekend.
