On June 28, 1915, the Brooklyn Tip-Tops of the Federal (baseball) League hosted the Chicago Whales in a contest at which all would be admitted for free. Brooklyn owner Robert B Ward had a substantial bakery in New York. Perhaps he figured that more fans would see his outfield ads for bread and so forth. Of course we know what happened to the Brooklyn Tip Tops and the whole Federal League.
