In case you missed it on Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles played the Chicago White Sox in an empty Camden Yards.

The Orioles won the game 8-2, in what can only be described as the strangest situation you'll ever see in the big leagues. I mean, here you had all stars on the field playing in front of a crowd of... nobody.
In an effort to make the best of the situation, there were some funny happenings.
