David Pietrusza balances precise research with an eye for intriguing anecdotal material. From the first night game at Nantasket Beach between two department store teams to the experiments of barnstorming teams, from the bush leagues and the minor leagues to the eventual conversion of the major league clubs, Pietrusza offers insight into this fascinating phase of baseball history. He concludes with an analysis of the effects of nighttime play on the sport. Lights On! will appeal to baseball fans and students of sports history alike.
