50 YEARS AGO: It was announced in an advertisement for the Modesto Reds that the team would be re-issuing a game promotion from its July 30 rainout. The promotion, Pepsi Night, was set for the team’s Aug. 20 game with the Reno Silver Sox and gave attendees free admission to the game. The only catch was, each person had to present an empty 6-pack of Pepsi, Diet Pepsi or Teem soda. Gates opened at Del Webb Field at 6:30 p.m. with game time at 7:30 p.m.
