On February 3 1942 — Major League owners hold a meeting to discuss regulations to be used during World War II. The owners decide to have each team play 14 night games, except for the Washington Senators, who will be permitted 21 games under the lights at Griffith Stadium due to the large number of government workers located in Washington, D.C. Metro area.

Two All-Star Games will be played, one with a military All-Star team. Curfews are set for night games with no inning to start after 12:50 A.M.
