By Dan Kadar Published: June 2, 2014

Wednesday will mark the 40-year anniversary of 10-cent Beer Night at Cleveland Stadium. ESPN looks back on one of Cleveland's most infamous sports days ever in the above video hosted by Bob Golic of WNIR (100.1-FM).

On that day, the Cleveland Indians were playing the Texas Rangers. In an effort to get more fans in the stadium, the team had a promotion to sell 12-ounce beers for 10 cents. Throughout the game fans ran on the field, leading to a riot in the ninth inning.

The Indians were forced to forfeit the game after three bases were stolen and nine people were arrested.
