A Very Happy Thursday Everyone!

“The Lights Go On At Wrigley” – Today marks the 25th anniversary of the first scheduled night game at Wrigley Field.

On August 8, 1988, the Chicago Cubs played the Philadelphia Phillies in the park’s first night game.  Unfortunately Mother Nature stepped in and the game was rained out in the 4th inning – Because the five innings needed for the game to be official were not completed, Wrigley’s first night game is officially recorded as a 6-4 win over the New York Mets the next night on August 9th.
