We are the Marathon Seekers Group, eleven SABR members who are constantly looking to discover Baseball Marathons lasting 20 or more innings. So far, we have 648. But we know that we are touching only the tip of the iceberg.

These games are very difficult to discover. Through much experience, we have learned that the three best places to find such games are (1) during the 1900 through 1929 era, at the height of Town Ball games; (2) Latino Baseball in the Caribbean and in Latin America; and (3) current games as they occur.

We hope that you will review this list, and contact me, Phil Lowry, via e-mail at plowry1176@aol.com, if you see a game missing from the List, or if you can provide missing details, like the final score of the June 18, 1923 D.C. School Championship Game.

We offer an Official Certificate to all who find a new game not yet on the List. Thank you very much for your help.
