In 1933, Pennsylvania voters  overwhelming approved the 21st Amendment that repealed Prohibtion. And just as they would conduct referenda in 1935 on Sunday movies,  almost every municipality in Pennsylvania also held a vote on the “Blue Law” that prohibited Sunday sports. Many cities, boroughs and  townships voted to keep the ban on Sunday baseball, but in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, the two cities with Major League teams, the measure passed easily.
