The Indians hosted the Texas Rangers on June 4, 1974. It was supposed to be a run-of-the-mill Tuesday night game. But it turned into one of the most infamous games in baseball history.

Author Vince Guerrieri will discuss the events that included a rare combination of bad blood between the two teams, a promotion that was ill-advised in retrospect and a full moon.

Guerrieri is the author of Weird Moments in Cleveland Sports: Bottlegate, Bedbugs, and Burying the Pennant – and More!
