Come Play On Our Team!

PHD Baseball Charities presents The Guinness Book of World Records - Longest Baseball Game. We will attempt to break the Guinness Record for the world’s longest continuous baseball game. The current record is 62 hours, 32 minutes, 59 seconds.

 

Playing for a Cure

Teaming up with the ALS Association, PHD Baseball Club members will be playing baseball to find a cure for this life-threatening disease. Together, we can ALL strikeout ALS through this great game of baseball. Join us in August as we go for a record and fight ALS.

 

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year.


Who's On First, What's On Second?

 

WHEN: August 1, 2014 – August 4, 2014

WHERE: Cottage Grove, Minnesota

WHY: PHD Charities will collaborate with the ALS Association to present this marathon charity event. All proceeds from the marathon game will go to benefit the ALS Association and its efforts to research, treat, and cure Lou Gehrig’s disease.

  • 56 (28 on each team) ball players will participate. The only requirement is that the player is 16 years old before August 1st.
  • The 2013 attempt at the Metrodome came up short of the record, but raised thousands of dollars for the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Institute
  • Players are required to stay at the stadium for the duration of the game

  • The current world record is 62 hours, 32 minutes, 59 seconds
