Pity the Poor Beer Batter
In some minor league baseball parks it has become common to designate a player from the opposing team as the "beer batter," and if the "beer batter" strikes out, then for a brief period of time (e.g. 15 minutes), fans can buy beers at half price. A good deal for the fans, but pity the poor beer batter. It's been a while since I played professional baseball, but I'm glad they didn't have beer batters back then. There's enough to worry about without wondering whether you're going to contribute to the inebriation level of the home team crowd.
