It was on this day in 1982, when Ozzy Osbourne (at the height of his drug problem), performed a show in Des Moines, Iowa. During the show an audience member threw a bat onstage. The story goes Ozzy "thought" it was a toy, rubber bat, and bit its head off as a stunt -- only to find out the bat was real and alive. Classic Ozzy!
To commemorate the 40th anniversary, once again, the Ozzy store is offering up these Ozzy-branded plush bats with detachable heads.
