1949 During the ninth inning of the Dodgers' 10-8 loss to the Yankees in Game 5, the Ebbets Field lights are turned on, making it the first time a World Series game takes place under artificial lights. The first scheduled Fall Classic night game occurs when the Pirates host Baltimore for Game 4 at Three Rivers Stadium in 1971.
1966 For the second consecutive day, the Orioles win a World Series game, 1-0, in a contest decided by a home run when Frank Robinson takes a Don Drysdale pitch deep over the left-field fence in the fourth inning. With the lone run scored on a homer, for only the fifth time in the history of the Fall Classic, and the complete-game shutout thrown by Dave McNally, Baltimore completes a four-game sweep over the Dodgers.
