Despite smaller crowd, 11K fans thrilled to cheer on Orioles

Many Baltimore Orioles fans said Thursday was definitely a different type of home opener. With COVID-19 protocols in place, it certainly wasn't as crowded as years prior, but some fans were happy to cheer on the O's even from behind a face mask. Even without the usual numbers at Camden Yards, Orioles pride in the crowd was louder than ever now that for the first time in more than a year, fans were allowed back in the stands.
