The first MLB night game was played on May 24th, 1935 at Crosley Field in Cincinnati between the Reds and the Philadelphia Phillies. The Reds won 2-1.

"The first game played under lights by major league teams didnot take place in Cincinnati. It occured in (an exhibition game) February 21, 1931 at (Houston Buffs) Buff Stadium in Houston (Texas) between the Chicago White Sox and New York Giants. It was the first time two major league teams played under the lights. During the 1930 season Waco was the first in the (Triple AAA Minor League) Texas League to install lights. Before that season ended, Houston, San Antonio and Shreveport were playing night games. The first night game in the majors was held in 1935." - Gene Elston - Voice of the Houston Astros from 1962 to 1986.
