BEER HERE: When Indian President Gabe Paul heard that a brew at Cleveland Stadium would cost $2, he protested, "That's too much." Paul's frothing paid off: Prices were dropped to $1.30 and $1.25, depending on the size of the serving.... AND HERE: Even though Opening Day and Election Day coincided in St. Louis, fans in Busch Stadium toasted their champs in style. Aldermen averted a brewhaha by repealing a law that prevented the sale of alcohol while polls were open.... BUT NOT HERE: The Braves will sell no beer in two special dry sections of 384 reserved seats.
