Lights, for one. More schools have invested in better lighting for their 
fields to accomodate other sports like soccer, etc., that play well into 
fall where sunset is earlier.  I agree that there was nothing like a 
crisp Saturday afternoon of school ball, splinters and all. Maybe 
Booster orgs had something to do with pushing for it. They can carry 
decent local poli-clout.  (If that was a dumb question, then this was a 
dumb answer. Welcome to the club!)
