Baseball changed dramatically on May 24, 1935 with the introduction of Major League Baseball under the lights. President Franklin Roosevelt threw the light switch to the historic first Major League night game from the White House six hundred (600+) miles away from Crosley Field. The Reds went on to play exactly seven night games in 1935, which included one game at night against every National League team. CIN v.
