The longest game in MLB History was between the White Sox and Brewers

9 Things You Might Not Know About Baseball

The longest game was 25 Innings between Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago White Sox on May 8, 1984.


The White Sox won by a score of 7-6. The game was stopped after 17 innings for much needed rest between the two teams with the score tied 3-3. Play resumed and Harold Baines ended the game in the 25th with a walk-off home run.

The game’s 8 hour and 6 minute length does not include the rest period between the 17th and 18th innings.

In 1920, Boston Braves and Brooklyn Robins (who later became the LA Dodgers*) played 26 innings. With the score tied 1-1 and after 8 hours and 22 minutes of play, the game was stopped and ended in a tie. But, can we really call it a baseball game if no one wins?
