Last month, the Boston Red Sox announced that the team would ban alcohol from their clubhouses, causing a stir in the baseball world, since, you know, baseball and beer go hand in hand.

Yet apparently, they are just the last of 19 teams that have gone dry, despite the fact that most stadiums are sponsored by beers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals, Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers, Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, and Arizona Diamondbacks are just some of the teams who have banned alcohol, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Furthermore, the commissioner's office is still considering a league-wide ban on alcohol, given a slew of alcohol-related deaths in the sports industry. So it looks like more and more players will have to brave the fan-ridden bars to get their post-game beer.
