The smallest crowd in Camden Yards history was 10,130 for a game last season against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Unless, this is a late-arriving crowd, that number will be seriously challenged tonight. I obviously haven't counted by hand - though I probably could - but there is absolutely no way there are 10,000 people in the seats right now.

Can't blame it on the weather either. The temperature at first pitch was 66 degrees and you couldn't get a much better April night for a baseball game.

Felix Pie did give the small crowd something to cheer about when he hit a 392-foot bomb off Matt Garza to lead of the bottom of the first. It was Pie's first career leadoff home run.
