1970s / First World Series Night Game - 1971
On Wednesday, October 13, 1971, Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh hosted the first night game in World Series history. The hometown Pirates defeated the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 to level the series at two games apiece. (Pittsburgh would eventually prevail in seven games.) As early as 1949, lights had been turned on during some WS games as dusk approached, but never before had a WS game been scheduled for after sunset. By 1973, all WS weekday games were contested at night. There hasn't been a WS day game since 1987.
