"Wrigley Field: Fans Shed Light on the Game"

Aug 8, 1988 at 6:05 p.m., 91-year-old Cubs fan Harry Grossman began the countdown. "Three . . . two . . . one . . . Let there be lights!" The controversy over whether to install lights for night games at Wrigley Field in Chicago saw Scott Mutter create the image of Cub fans lighting the ball diamond with flashlights. This artwork touched off a national sensation and became one of baseball?s most enduring images over the last decade of the 20th century. Even though night games at Wrigley Field are no longer a novelty, the magic of the image provides a dramatic graphic depiction of the relationship between professional ball players on the field and the fans.
