The longest recorded baseball game in professional baseball history was played on April 18-19, 1981 between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings, two minor league teams in the International League. The game lasted a total of 33 innings and took 8 hours and 25 minutes to complete, with the final score being 3-2 in favor of Pawtucket.
The game began on April 18 at 8:25 p.m. and continued through the night and into the early morning hours of April 19. The game was eventually called due to darkness at 4:09 a.m., with the teams scheduled to resume play later that day. However, the game was delayed by rain and eventually suspended until June 23, when it was completed in just 18 minutes.
The game set several records, including the longest game in professional baseball history, the most innings played in a professional game, and the most at-bats by a single player in a game (with Pawtucket outfielder Dave Koza going 0-12).
Overall, the game remains a legendary moment in baseball history, a testament to the endurance and perseverance of the players who participated in it.
