The airplane taking the Orioles to the Tampa area Sunday night had its flight diverted to Jacksonville because of smoke in the forward galley.
Michael Stewart, spokesman for the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, said the plane was inspected and deemed okay to fly. The Orioles resumed their trip on the same aircraft, leaving Jacksonville International Airport at 10:15 p.m. and touching down safely in Tampa.
Stewart said the plane was a Delta charter with more than 90 people aboard. No one was in danger, Orioles spokeswoman Monica Barlow said.
