The Orioles might have to deal with scheduling a possible doubleheader for Thursday if the weather doesn't allow them to play their scheduled game against the Pittsburgh Pirates today. Meanwhile, the club has found the solution to a rainout earlier this season.
The Orioles' April 15 rainout against the Tampa Bay Rays will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Friday, June 27 at Camden Yards, according to an industry source.
The team hasn't officially decided whether the game will be a split doubleheader or back-to-back, but it likely will be a split admission, with games being played at 1:05 and 7:05 p.m.
That would allow the team to collect gate revenue to two separate games. Fans with tickets for the April 15 game who cannot attend on June 27 would be able to exchange their tickets. An official announcement on the doubleheader could come later this week.
Television restrictions prevented the Orioles from making up the game as part of a split doubleheader on June 28. Even though the teams share a common off day on June 26, the collective bargaining agreement prevents teams from playing more than 20 consecutive days.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
