First Night Game In Los Angeles
84 Years Ago Today - Wrigley Field - July 22, 1930

The prediction about the influx of lights at every ballpark was correct, but just a little off on the timing…

Crowds At Night Baseball On The Coast : Out-rivaling New York’s Great White Way in illuminating brilliance, on July 22nd the first night baseball game was played at Los Angeles, Calif., at the William Wrigley Field. The field, which employs over 40,000,000 candlepower, supplied by 144 powerful floodlights is said to be the largest illuminating job of its kind in the country, according to Crouse-Hinds engineers, who designed the equipment. Predictions were made at the opening that every professional club, both major and minor, would have its park equipped with artificial illumination within the next five years. Attendance at the Los Angeles game was over 25,000, said to be the largest for that city in its history.”
