A man denied a tote bag at Angel Stadium last Mother's Day is starting a class action suit against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Corinthian Colleges (sponsors of the event) alleging discrimination because of sex and age.
The Los Angeles Times report says that the promotion last year gave away red nylon tote bags to all women over 18 in attendance.
Do people just wake up every morning and think of ways to sue the Angels about something incredibly stupid?
In my life, I've only been to one baseball promotion where you had to be over a certain age. That was at Yankee Stadium where Bud Light sponsored a souvenir umbrella night on July 10, 1997. I got the date from Retrosheet because I remember the game being Hideki Irabu's New York debut. Presumably that since a beer company's name was on the umbrella, you had to be of legal drinking age to get the umbrella.
I think I tried opening that umbrella a few times. It was about 18 inches in diameter when open and looked sturdy enough to withstand wind gusts up to 2 mph.
