Fans poured into Camden Yards Wednesday amidst controversy surrounding Manny Machado and Tuesday night's fight. Some fans are backing Machado, others are torn.

"I don't condone violence in any way shape or form but you know sometimes you've got to stand your ground and I think maybe the league should take a more active role," Orioles fan Matt Grayson said.

Even area businesses like Jimmy's Seafood are behind No. 13.

"Him doing something like that, while it may not be, politically correct it's definitely something where everyone has been in that situation before," said Johnny "Crabcakes" Minadakis, owner of Jimmy's Seafood.

Machado will likely receive a suspension, but at least he can enjoy some crabcakes. 

"He might have a little suspension here and his wallet might get a little light he's got free crabs, he's got free crabcakes," Mindakis said. "If he's got to keep his body fat down for the season, we'll prepare jimmy' for him."

Some fans, diehard or not, aren't as light-hearted about Machado's choice to start the fight. They say he's a role model to athletes young and old.

"We have two small children who play sports as well and you need to be able to control yourself and we're trying to teach them," Colleen Grayson said.
