On this day... Ray Kroc suffers with you

It was April 9th, 1974 The San Diego Padres are losing to the Houston Astros 9-2. In the middle of the 8th inning a frustrated Padres owner Ray Kroc addresses the fans "I suffer with you..." just as a streaker dashes across the field.

"Hey.... get that streaker out of here... throw him in jail..."

Kroc finishes with a flurry, blasting his team "I've never seen such stupid ball playing in my life..."

Inspired or angered by the public blasting, the Padres score 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning, including a Cito Gaston 2 RBI double... but still end up losing 9-5.
