Disco Blows Up at Comiskey Park

Don BarbeauContributor IFebruary 6, 2009

I am a Cubs fan, but I was at Comiskey Disco Nite.

You have to hate the White Sucks, but you had to love how Bill Veeck blew up disco records (for you kids, that what we used to listen to music on, like you use CDs) in the middle of the outfield.  Had to be one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

It happened between games of a double-header. They could not play the second game, and the link below will show why.  Steve Dahl, a local radio host, promoted this. 

The kicker is that on double header night with blowing up records, they had 10 cent beer all night.  Game 2 did not get played, duh!
