DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is the longest game, innings-wise, that you have attended? And what is the latest you have ever left a press box after filing a story?
(Press Box Pal from The Pressbox)
Longest game: 18 innings between Cubs and Pirates in August, 1989 with Jeff King hitting a walk-off home run back at a time when the term walkoff had not been invented. Latest out of the press box: 4:24 a.m. following Game 7 of the 1992 NLCS between to the Pirates and Braves at Fulton County Stadium. I was working for an afternoon paper -- remember them? -- and had a 5 a.m. deadline. (John Perrotto)
