Night Games at Ebbets Field

Ebbet's Field

Ebbets Field, New York, 1940.

In 1935, the Cincinnati Reds were the first Major League team to play home games at night, and three years later the Brooklyn dodgers lit Ebbets Field. By the 1950s, yearly attendance at night games exceeded day-game attendance in most Major League cities.
