    by Baseballisms

    There are many moments in baseball that can be considered "firsts". It can be a player's first at bat, home run, save, no-hitter .. or for a fan it can be attending a major league game for the first time. When it comes to historical moments in the timeline of the game, there are first events related to stadiums as well. Recently there have been a slew of new ballparks opening so there have been historic first games played on the new fields. This baseballism is about a "First" at an old ballpark, Wrigely Field home of the Chicago Cubs since 1916, which all Cubs fans will remember had it's very first game under the lights on the memorable date of August 8, 1988 or 8/8/88. Or did it? Thanks Joe for sharing this with us!
