A history question for you.... I'm really curious about this one...

What ever happened to the Bleacher Bums?

And when did they fade away?

I'm guessing they got priced out of existence as the tickets became too expensive for anyone to attend most games unless they make a lot of money and have a lot of spare time (a rare combination). Maybe this occurred as the salary structure and ticket prices skyrocketed during the 1980s?

Thanks for your feedback.
