On This Date in Baseball History – 10 Cent Beer Night in Cleveland
Forty years ago tonight, major league baseball survived one of it’s uglier moments – “10 Cent Beer Night” in Cleveland. Nobody was coming to the Indians’ games, so they lowered the price of beer to 10 cents for a 10 ounce cup.
What do you think happened?
The good news? 25,000 people showed up. The bad news? Fans were mooning the players, a female fan got on the field and flashed the crowd, there were streakers on the field, and fans actually stole the bases. And then it got out of hand. Here’s the story from mentalfloss.com.
