June 25, 1943 was this a night game at Wrigley?

Written By Bruce Weirauch,

June 25, 1943 With the first pitch thrown at 6 p.m., the Chicago Cubs right-hander Hi Bithorn shuts out the St Louis Cardinals, 6-0, in a twilight game played at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL. Under current baseball interpretations, the two-hour, 17-minute contest, played on one of the longest daylight days of the year, would be considered a night game, but no lights are needed (good thing because there aren’t any).
