Inspired by mandmandm's thread about Chicago beer sales, here is a list of the alcohol policies for all the MLB teams. Some are incomplete as they had no info on the official team websites.

Angels Stadium
No alcoholic beverages are allowed into the parking lot or the ballpark. California law prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21. Therefore, any fans under the age of 40 should be prepared to show proper identification and proof of age when purchasing alcoholic beverages at the ballpark. Beer sales at concession stands will end at the conclusion of the eighth inning. Fans are not allowed to take any alcoholic beverages out of Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
Minute Maid Park

i like how one of them said you can't have alcohol in the bathroom. I guess they have a don't drink and piss policy.

Oh, and why do people feel the need to point out that a topic should be in another thread....like the Beatles said, let it be.

Sounds like a question for Baby Fisk. Is that a Canadian law or something? No mash in the pisser?

Interesting footnote to Wrigley:

They don't allow the beer vendors to go into the bleachers, they have to stand out behind them. Kind of strange....

I noticed this when I saw them get killed by the Brewers. Got Ohka's autograph that day.

INR doesn't want the usual rabble on this one. If this was next to the drinking team thread all hell would bust loose.

You'd have people planning how much they could legally drink before, during, and after the game at every major park.
