Here is one for Chris and his state of Texas

1988

In the longest game ever played in Texas League history, the San Antonio Missions beat the visiting Jackson Mets in 26 innings, 1-0, when Manny Francois ended it with a bases-loaded single to center. The V.J. Keefe Stadium contest, which started on July 14th, was suspended at 2:25 a.m. the following day and continued on July 16th, taking seven hours and 23 minutes to complete.

Could not decide so here are 2 for today


  • 1979 - Carl Yastrzemski hits his four-hundredth career home run in Boston's 7–3 win over Oakland, off Mike Morgan, in the seventh inning at Fenway Park.

  • 1983 - In the memorable Pine Tar Game at Yankee Stadium, George Brett hits an apparent 2-run home run off Rich Gossage to give the Royals a 5-4 lead with two outs in the ninth inning. But Yankees manager Billy Martin points out that the pine tar on Brett's bat handle exceeds the seventeen inches allowed in the rules. As a result, Brett is called out for illegally batting the ball, giving New York a 4-3 victory. The Royals immediately protest, and American League President Lee MacPhail overrules his umpires for the first time saying that, while the rules should certainly be rewritten and clarified, the home run will stand and the game will be resumed from that point on August 18.

Had to show 2 today because of their importance


  • 1978- The Baltimore Orioles benefited from the rain-out rule. The Orioles were leading New York 3-0 after six innings but the Yankees scored five runs in the top half of the seventh. Heavy rains ended the game in the bottom half of the inning and the score reverted to the end of the last completed frame, giving the Orioles the triumph. This rule was changed in 1980.

  • 1979 - Lou Brock collects his 3,000th career hit, a single off Dennis Lamp, as the Cardinals top the Cubs 3-2.
