  • Is this the craziest MLB game ever played?

    July 10, 1932 As vs Indians

    The score is tied at 15 after 9 innings, then no one scores for the next 6 innings. Then both teams put up 2 runs, and it i'snt over until the 18th.

    Jimmie Foxx gets 3 home runs and 8 RBI, giving him 101 RBI for the season already (batting .383)

    The Indians get 33 hits, including one guy getting 9 hits.

    Eddie Rommell gets the win, despite giving up 29 hits, 14 runs and 9 walks.

    I would love to hear the play by play for this game, does anyone know where I can get it?

    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

      On the other hand, out of all the guys that have ever pitched 17+ innings of relief in a game (since 1919), he did the best. :cap:

        This was the the one day trip (to play a Sunday game) that Connie Mack decided to save some train fare money by bringing only two pitchers. I've been to some nine inning games that took almost as long as this game took.

              The May 17, 1979 Phillies-Cubs game at Wrigley Field was pretty wild. The Phillies ended up winning 23-22 in 10 innings.

              Dave Kingman's missed diving catch of Larry Bowa's hit was hilarious!

                Cool video. A HR by a starting pitcher that only threw 0.1 innings. There's something you don't see every day!
