Today in Baseball History:

  • 1966 - The Miami Marlins and St. Petersburg Cardinals play the longest game in organized baseball history up to that point, needing 29 innings for Miami to prevail, 4 - 3. The game ends in the early hours of June 15th, after 6 hours and 59 minutes. It remains the longest game ever played without interruption, and only the longest game in baseball history, begun on April 18, 1981 but completed a number of weeks later, has gone more innings since.
  • 1969 - Reggie Jackson of the Oakland Athletics collects 10 RBI with two home runs, a double and two singles against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. In the 8th inning, Jackson drives in three runs with a single when he easily could have made second base. Oakland wins, 21 - 7.
