The San Luis Obispo Blues Baseball Club is one of California's oldest baseball teams. Heckling is encouraged at the games, as seen by the officially designated "patsy of the game". Here an opposing player is singled out for particularly intense abuse. A local Pub knocks 50 cents off selected beer prices after the game for each time the randomly selected "patsy" strikes out, a deal that creates some especially energetic heckling. "The hecklers have an incentive to get in the guy's head to get him to strike out," says bar owner Bill Hales. When late arrivals take their seats in the Peach Pit, one of the first things they do is ask who the patsy is and then join in the heckling. "Hey, patsy, I'm thirsty. Don't disappoint me".
