Leon Cadore

On May 1, 1920, at Braves Field, Brooklyn’s Cadore faced Joe Oeschger in the longest major league game ever played. Curveballer Cadore allowed 15 hits, walked five, and struck out seven. Brooklyn scored one run in the fourth; Boston answered with a run in the fifth. After 26 innings, with both starters still pitching despite the cold, damp weather, darkness fell, and the game was called, tied 1-1. Cadore went on to win a lifetime high of 15 that season.
