Thread: Marathons Lasting 20 or More Innings in the Marlins Area

    Marathons Lasting 20 or More Innings in the Marlins Area

    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 Marlins fans will review this list, and contact me, Phil Lowry, via e-mail at plowry1176@aol.com, if you know of a game not on the list, or if you can provide missing details for a game already on the List.

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