A group of 48 teens with the organization PHD Baseball (Pitching, Hitting, Defense) took their bats to cancer in August by attempting to play the world’s longest baseball game while raising money for the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. Players rotated in and out of 169 innings at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome over the course of 40 hours, 15 minutes, and 26 seconds. Though the game likely will go down in the books as the fourth longest game in history, PHD Baseball still raised thousands of dollars for the Masonic Cancer Center.
