Coronavirus Tales: If you want fancy, wait until next year

Clarence Haskett, better known as Fancy Clancy the beer man, has been sidelined during the pandemic.

On the July opening day of this year’s strange and shortened baseball season, Clarence Haskett pulled out his phone and texted nearly 100 friends.

The group was “people that I’ve developed good relationships with over the years and see over and over again,” Haskett said. “I just hope everyone stays safe, so I can see them next year.”

Those friends surely appreciated getting a text from Haskett. But they probably would have preferred a cold beer.

Haskett, 61, is better known to legions of Orioles and Ravens fans as “Fancy Clancy” or “Clancy the Beer Man.” They cheer him on as he bounds up stadium steps carrying heavy buckets of brew, bending perilously over railings and striking muscular poses to serve his clients.

Haskett is one of scores of stadium workers and ancillary businesses who are sidelined by the year of the coronavirus, as players compete in empty stadiums with cutout figures propped in the front rows.
