On August 8, 1988, the Chicago Cubs scheduled the first night game ever to be held at Wrigley Field. On that date, 8/8/88, baseball history was made as the Cubs played for the very first time under artificial lighting. As the game was beginning a thunderstorm developed near the stadium. Those clouds are visible between the lights. Early in the game, rain began to fall and the game was called off. This photograph was taken from an elevated platform across the street from left center field. It includes the famous rooftops, ivy walls, and the old mechanical scoreboard. This photograph is found hanging in many restaurants and offices across the country.
