The Longest Professional Baseball Game
I was searching your site for, but could not find the answer to, my question. I am trying to find out what was the longest baseball game ever, in innings and the final score of that game.
The longest professional baseball game in history began on April 18, 1981 and featured two Triple A minor-league teams - the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings. At 4:07 a.m. on April 19, with the score tied 2-2, the game was suspended after 32 innings. The game was resumed on June 23, 1981, and ended when Dave Koza's bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 33rd inning scored Marty Barrett, giving Pawtucket a 3-2 win over Rochester. The continuation took only 18 minutes to complete. Bob Ojeda pitched one inning to earn the win. Future ML stars Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken, Jr. went a combined 6-for-25 in the game. TOTAL: 33 innings, 8 hours 25 minutes.
The longest game in major league baseball history was a 25-inning affair on May 8, 1984 when the Chicago White Sox beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 7-6. The game lasted 8 hours and 6 minutes.
