Project: 33 Innings…The Longest Professional Baseball Game in History

The most important record set that night was that the game lasted 33 innings over a total of nearly eight and
a half hours! Three players went to bat 14 times in the game while a single catcher for the Pawtucket Redwings
worked behind the plate for 31 innings before being taken out for exhaustion, and the umpire Dennis Cregg set the
all-time record by calling 882 pitches.
