Jun 9, 1963:The first Sunday night game in National League history is played at Colt Stadium with Houston blanking the Giants, 3-0, to sweep the series. The Colt .45s got permission from the league after the summer heat made day games an ordeal during the 1962 season. 38-year-old castoff Hal Brown is the hero, relieving Dick Farrell in third inning and allowing just one hit the rest of the way for his first National League win.
