Baseball, in this day and age, can seem to take an eternity to watch. Especially if you’re going into the 8th with a 0-0 tie on your hands. But the longest baseball game in major league play was played between the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The game started on May 9, 1984, and because of MLB rules, the teams had to quit playing at 12:59 am of May 10, so the teams came back the next day to finish what they’d started the day before. All in all, the game lasted 8 hours and 6 minutes, with a final score of 7-6 in 25 innings. The White Sox won, by the way, on a home run by right fielder Harold Baines. The shortest MLB game on record took place on September 28, 1919 between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Phillies at the Baker Bowl in Philadelphia. It took the Giants only 51 minutes to beat the Phillies, 6-1. 1
