  • Long International Marathon Games Lasting 20 or More Innings

    Does anyone see any omissions or corrections that need to be made to this list of 100 international marathon games lasting 20 or more innings ? Having researched this list for my book Baseball's Longest Games, I almost certain that it is incomplete, especially in Latin America and in Japan. I hope that someone out there on this thread will know of some additional games to add to the list.
