This should be complete torture, or maybe not:
September 29, 1971
June 4, 1974
September 15, 1977
July 12, 1979

Ok everyone, what is "special" about these dates. :-B

WOW! Family I didn't know I had. This is a legit list, the same thing happened on these dates and not again since 79, which by the way is probably the most widely know date for this to happen.

A Major League team forfeited a game on each of these days.

Give the man a run. Yes these are the last four forfeits in baseball, the last being July 12, 1979 the night of the famous "Disco Demolition" promotion.

I'm not sure but I am told he has a collection of Bee Gee's albums %-6 Actually I saw a blurb on tv with a reference to DD night in Chicago a day or two after I posted this and I expected it would go quick.

Actually, I know a ton about '76 through '79. The Yanks were great and Thurman Munson died. I was little then, but my dad, my brother and I made a scrap book containing tons of articles, etc. from those seasons, and all of the Munson memories articles. The only one I knew was the '79 one when the White Sox forfeited to the Tigers because of a bunch of drunken fans tearing the whole field up! Wasn't positive of the day, but I couldn't think of another forfeit since then.

You get one, you get 'em alll!

I think the best baseball fans are those who started as kids. I have found over the years that going to a baseball game just doesn't have the same meaning it did when I was younger. We used to go to 4 or 5 games at Fenway every summer when I was a kid. Now I might go to one or two games a year at Safeco Field and then only when a friend of mine gives me tickets to a game (He has seats 2 rows back of the visitor dugout). Sigh....to be a kid again :,-(
