July 12, 1979 — Some of more than 7,000 fans of a 50,000-crowd at Chicago’s White Sox park storm the field following the first game of a scheduled doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers. The second game had to be called off when umpires ruled the field unfit for play. Melee followed a burning of disco records on the field by an anti-disco radio station.   (Fred Jewell/AP)
