The first lighted baseball stadium West of the Mississippi

The Madrid Miners were a pretty successful baseball team from about 1920-1950.  Their home was the mining town of Madrid, New Mexico, which got its start when coal was discovered nearby in the mid-1800s.  This link will take readers to a trove of history about the first baseball stadium to have its own lightes, even before the first major-league team got them.
