ten cent beer night
Along with Disco Demolition Night
, one of the stupidest nights in baseball history. June 4
, 1974, Cleveland Stadium, Ohio. The Cleveland Indians were playing the Texas Rangers, and the Indians unwisely offered all the beer you can drink for ten cents. Many fans showed up drunk/stoned. Nonetheless, the game managed to make its way to the bottom of the ninth inning, tied 5-5. Fans had already been causing nonsense, and a fan decided to jump onto the field and steal a Texas baseball cap. The Rangers and drunk fans then swarmed the field, leading to a WWE style
melee with hundreds of participants. An umpire forfeited the game to Texas and got bonked on the head with a seat.
