The Orioles seem to be cutting back on Natty Boh at Camden Yards, and that really sucks

“...If you missed the dustup on Thursday and Friday, here’s the abbreviated version. A Baltimore beer enthusiast who is known across social media simply as Beer in Baltimore took to Twitter and Facebook, proclaiming that in the upcoming season, there will be no Natty Boh beer sold at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Even if you don’t like the beer, you can probably appreciate why people were upset…”

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 2-11-2016

Washington Times, February 11, 1916:

The [Baltimore] fans, or, at least, many of the more determined, have set their hearts on a major league team and insist they will not be happy with anything else. In an effort to get what they demand cards are being spread broadcast calling on all lovers of the game to boycott the International League team as representing “tank town baseball.”

Here’s the card:
STAND UP FOR BALTIMORE!
We want BIG LEAGUE BASEBALL or nothing.
...
We can’t compel the moguls to give our city major league Baseball, BUT they surely can’t make the fans support their tank town flag station league.
DON’T Patronize the Internationals.

I know they were angry, but that seems…counterproductive. I do like the phrase “tank town flag station league”, though.
