Certainly it was more sociologically important that Veeck's crazy comb night (I think my crazy comb was in the glove compartment of my 1970 Maverick when I traded it in) or farm night where White Sox minor leaguers played a pregame exhibition, where I first saw Mike Squires playing first, and the giveaway was a sapling for everybody coming through the gate.

I don't know if the team would draw attention to disco demolition, though, if it had happened under the watch of the current ownership.
