Baseball History

39th Anniversary of Disco Demolition Night

On this day, thirty nine years ago, one of the weirdest nights in baseball history.

Trying to destroy the legacy of Disco, local DJ Steve Dahl and eccentric owner of the White Sox Bill Veeck decided to join forces to get more people to come to White Sox games and to spread an anti-Disco message. The result was a riot on the field and the White Sox forfeiting a game in the standings. When you think about, it was just kind of funny. Click on the YouTube link below:
