In light of the recent storm that is camped out over the East Coast, I bring to you the double-header. Back in the day Major League Baseball used to purposely schedule double-headers for a rare ultra-fan treat. Heck, even recently rained out game would be made up as part of a double-header, where the games were played back-to-back and the fans got two for the price of one. But now in today's economically driven baseball world double-headers are as rare as a white boy in Harlem. And when a double-header does come up, they become day/night, where the fans have to have 2 separate tickets to each game so the organization can take in more greenbacks at the gate. I remember when I lived in Philly when the Vet was still around and I could go see a double-header for $8...ain't happening anymore brotha.
