The start of the first game of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and Rangers was delayed due to inclement weather.
The first pitch was pushed to 2:15 p.m., an hour after the original start time. Pregame festivities — including Joan Jett singing the national anthem and Adam Jones throwing out the first pitch — will go on as planned.
The delay, though, could cause even more downtown traffic once the game ends. Neighboring M&T Bank Stadium is hosting a Billy Joel-Stevie Nicks concert at 7 p.m. Gates are still scheduled to open for that event at 5:30 p.m., but the opening of shared parking lots will be pushed back to 6:15 p.m. due to the delay of first pitch.
A herd of Orioles fans could be departing at the same time as concert-goers are arriving.
CFG Bank Arena, less than half a mile from Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, also has a concert Saturday night, adding even more congestion to the area.
