The Tampa Bay Rays occupy first place in the American League East, which has to be regarded as something of a pleasant surprise for those connected with the team.
When the Orioles moved to Tropicana Field for three games where they acted as the home team, attendance was bound to take a hit.
It wasn’t a typical spring Friday in Baltimore. Usually, the streets are filled with people, some wearing Orioles garb. Today I saw only one.
Tampa Bay Rays (12-10) vs. Baltimore Orioles (10-10), Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Fla., 7:05 p.m.
