From the description card, dating back to 1951:
“Residents of Fowler, 35 miles east of Pueblo of the Western league, gave away copious amounts of of [sic] beans, butter, bananas, braed [sic], and bacon to advertise their community in the Goodman attendance trophy competition. Then, to climax the evening, following the game they turned six young jack rabbits loose in the park, for the Pueblo players to chase. Attached to each bunny was a $5 bill.”
Boy, people sure knew how to have a good time back in 1951.
