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.
The record for the World's Longest Baseball Game was broken! Previously, the longest game in history was 62 hours, 32 minutes, and 59 seconds. PHD Baseball Club broke that record on Sunday night, August 3rd, 2014 at 10:12 p.m...This is a working gallery so please get any photos you have to Bryan Ludwig at firstname.lastname@example.org
