Steve Dahl’s Notorious 1979 Disco Demolition

Disco Demolition was a promotional event held at Comiskey Park on July 12, 1979. The Chicago White Sox were playing a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers. Radio Personality Steve Dahl asked his disco-hating listeners to bring records to the ballpark where, between games, he would blow them up on the field. The extremely large, overzealous crowd took to the field and damaged it, resulting in the White Sox having to forfeit the second game. Disco Demolition night gained national attention and remains one of the most notorious promotional stunts in sports history.
