Starting to feel like summertime in here.

You ever get the feeling that you’re being watched?
May 7, 1959: Between the fifth and six innings of the benefit game for Roy Campanella, the lights at the Coliseum were extinguished and spectators struck matches and lit cigarette lighters as a tribute to the catcher, who was paralyzed in a car accident. “The flames winked like swarming fireflies in the darkness of the cavernous Coliseum,” The Times’ Frank Finch said.
"It was the meanest, most unruly, worst crowd I’ve ever seen at the Coliseum," said Chief John G. Degenkolb of the stadium’s Fire Department. "There was a gang element."
