    Remember 7/12/1979 at Old Comiskey Park when White Sox played the Tigers

    37 years ago tonight at the old ball park July 12, 1979.  The Chicago White Sox were scheduled to the play the Detroit Tigers in a twi-night doubleheader at Old Comiskey Park.  Admission was $0.98 and a disco record.
    The records were collected for a “Disco Sucks!” rally between games, concluding in a massive explosion to destroy all the disco records collected in Comiskey’s center field.

    Just one problem — the fans rioted.  The Sox forfeited the second game.

    There were over 50,000 fans inside Comiskey Park that night.  An estimated 10,000 more were outside the park trying to get tickets and at least 10,000 more hopelessly stuck in a massive traffic jam on the Dan Ryan Expressway.
