The First Night Game in Philly History

Incredible photo of the first ever night game in American League history, played at Shibe Park on May 16th, 1939. The A’s would lose to the Indians in 10 innings, 8-3. The Phillies would follow suit two weeks later, playing their first night game at Shibe Park. They would fall to Rip Sewell and the Pirates, 5-2. The Phillies had also been beaten four years before in the first ever night game in the majors, falling 2-1 to the Reds.
