I went to a Twins/Angels game in the mid 1980's on a "Hat Day" where the Twins organization was evidently stunned to see a crowd of about 40,000 show up (given there were about 5,500 the night before).

I think two vending stands were open, there were ZERO walking vendors and it was a complete disaster. My fiance (now my wife) stood in line for 5 innings to get me a beer (which was a major reason I married her).

All that being said - The Twins took out a full page ad apologizing for not being prepared for such a crowd in the next day's paper.
