The Vuvuzela: Was It At Baseball Parks Decades Ago?

BLOEMFONTEIN, SOUTH AFRICA - JUNE 22: A South Africa fan blows a vuvuzela prior to the the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa Group A match between France and South Africa at the Free State Stadium on June 22, 2010 in Mangaung/Bloemfontein, South Africa. (Photo by Clive Mason/Getty Images)

In Keith Olbermann's MLBlog, he writes that he remembers hearing the vuvuzela -- or something that looked and sounded a lot like it -- at Yankee Stadium in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

I remember a similar plastic horn being sold at Wrigley Field in that era. There is a comment in Olbermann's post saying the same thing, and others mentioning that these horns were available at Tiger Stadium and Shea Stadium.

Do any of the rest of you remember horns like this at Wrigley? I do.
