  • Nickel Beer Night in Cleveland

    Landies and Gentlemen This is a strange request, but does anyone know for sure it was nickel, and not 10cent beer night? This has become something of a topic on another board. In my research, I find its almost always called nickel beer night, and I always thought it was. Some now claim it to be 10cent night. Anyone know for sure? The game was played in June of 1974, and the rest is Cleveland lore. Thanks.

    Well, I recall it being 10 cent beer night. However, the two sources at Wikipedia (yeah, a good source) on 10 Cent Beer Night call it "Nickel Beer Night". I guess it would be a nickel.

      It was 10 cent beer night. The Indians actually had three more of them scheduled.

        Of course I could probably find just as many "reliable" sources that said it was a nickel too
        Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.
