Cleon Jones, a .340 hitter on the Mets’ 1969 World Series championship team and a member of the team’s Hall of Fame, was forced to hold a press conference to apologize for a 1975 incident in which he was arrested in St. Petersburg for indecent exposure after being found by police naked and asleep in the back of a van with a woman other than his wife. (The woman was charged with possession of marijuana). Jones also was fined $2,000 by the Mets, which might not seem to be a large sum by today’s standards, but the average MLB salary in 1975 was around $45,000.

Even so, you probably want to avoid a cacophony of gurgles and groans at inappropriate times, and there are steps you can take to cut down on these embarrassing noises.
