It would be interesting to look up the dates of those two 1983 games and see if they fell on Monday nights.
Not at all difficult; BB-Ref gives day of the week on their schedule/results pages.
Neither of those games took place on a Monday--7-21 was a Thursday; 9-7 was a Wednesday.
plus Fenway and HOF weekend
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
