"The clock (Wrigley didn't have lights in 1939, where the action is set. They also didn't have that clock, according to IMDB, till 1941. But I also learned from my brief research that the home team had the option of batting first if they chose until 1950, so I guess they're off the hook for that one)."

I've never read the book, and perhaps the movie isn't historically correct, but there were lights in the movie.
