I remember that, I was out playing in a band that night and we all heard about what was going on from the TV in the bar! That was the last time they ever did that!!! What a stupid idea!

 

I was at that old stadium hundreds of times with my Dad and then later with my kids!

 

They do have dollar dog nights sometimes now (at a different stadium, Progressive Field) and all that does in plug up the toilets!!:P

If I remember correctly, didn’t they have a ‘Disco Night ‘ once that turned into a debacle?

Disco Demolition Night was a Major League Baseball (MLB) promotionon Thursday, July 12, 1979, at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois, that ended in a riot. At the climax of the event, a crate filled with discorecords was blown up on the field between games of the twi-night doubleheader between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers. Many of those in attendance had come to see the explosion rather than the games and rushed onto the field after the detonation. The playing field was so damaged by the explosion and by the fans that the White Sox were required to forfeit the second game to the Tigers.

In the late 1970s, dance-oriented disco was the most popu
