Feb. 21st, When The Lights Came On

This Day in Baseball History

1931 The White Sox and Giants become the first major league teams to play a night game. The Buffs Stadium (Houston, Texas) exhibition game lasts ten innings, with the teams collecting a total of 23 hits.

There ya go, Night Owl, that's when it all started.

Though the first regular season game wasnt until May 24, 1935 when the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2–1 at Crosley Field. The original plan was that the Reds would play seven night games each season, one against each visiting club.
