Picture yourself at a baseball game. Snack in hand, you settle into your seat with a snack and wait for the first pitch. What time of day is it?
Did you picture the sky darkening over the field just before sunset? Today, more than 80 percent of Major League Baseball (MLB) games are played at night, under the lights. And thanks to developments in sports lighting technology, we can take in a sports game after dark and still clearly see every play, every inning and every movement on the field. But holding sports contests without daylight was once nearly impossible.
