On this day in Cubs history…

By jamesfrench

Times have changed in baseball over the years, how could it not since it has been around for well over 100 years. One of the biggest changes at one point was the inside stadium, the dome. Today, you see so many fields that can be indoor or outdoor with the retractable roof.

It was on April 30, 1965 that the Chicago Cubs finally played their first ever game indoors. It was quite a change for a team that has been used to playing outside on a sunny afternoon. The Cubs ventured into the Astrodome to play the Houston Astros for the first time. The change did not turn out well for the team as they ended up losing 4-3.
