Twenty-five years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first-ever night game at Wrigley Field. After having only played day games since claiming the park as home in 1916, the Cubs finally succumbed to pressure from MLB, which threatened that if the team ever won a pennant they’d have to host their World Series games at an alternate location, and installed lights. The game was, in typical Cubs fashion, a disappointment. It was called due to rain in the fourth inning, and wiped from the record books. The Cubs would play another night game the next night against the New York Mets, and win that one 6-4.

Even the most depressing lyrics feel uplifting when they’re sung in front of epic tiers of horns, drums, and women in pant suits.
