On July 11, 1976, the Atlanta Braves stage an unusual promotion at Atlanta’s Fulton County Stadium. In a pre-game ceremony dubbed “Headlocks and Wedlocks,” 34 couples are married at home plate, followed by the staging of championship wrestling matches. The Braves then defeat the New York Mets, 9-8, to complete the evening’s festivities.
