Minor leagues, major innings » When the subject is lengthy baseball games, people invariably turn to a Class AAA game between Rochester and Pawtucket in 1981. That game featured two future Hall of Famers, Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken, and is the longest in professional baseball history, at 33 innings and 8 hours 25 minutes.
