MLB, NFL face scheduling dilemma
PHOENIX (AP) - Major League Baseball is looking into a solution to a scheduling issue that could prevent the Super Bowl champion Ravens from opening next season in Baltimore.
Traditionally, the NFL's champs kick off the season on the Thursday night after Labor Day with a home game. But the Orioles are set to play the White Sox that night at Camden Yards, which uses the same parking lots as the Ravens' stadium.
MLB senior vice president Katy Feeney, who oversees scheduling, says Tuesday, "From a baseball competitive standpoint, it would be very difficult to change times. We're talking about September.''
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said earlier in the day he would be "very disappointed for our fans'' if the team opens on the road.
