While that is not the exact adage to the old baseball song, it reflects the content of a bill which passed a South Carolina House committee on Tuesday. The bill would allow liquor to be sold in minor league baseball parks across the state. It also raises the limit on the number of liquor licenses an entity can own.
State Rep. Peter McCoy, R-Charleston, said current law was uneven by allowing South Carolina stadiums to sell liquor at tennis events but not baseball stadiums. The bill, which passed the Senate last month, would end the apparent contradiction.
