The game was played at Nantasket Bay near Hull Massachusetts as part of the series of lighting displays put on by the Northern Electric Company of Boston to show the value of the incandescent lamp invented by Thomas Edison one year previous. The game ended in a 16 all draw. All quiz questions concern MLB. ”And there was Light”.
