The beautifully written story of the longest game in baseball history, between the Rochester Red Wings and the Pawtucket Red Sox, in 1981, and, against this backdrop, an ode to the aspirations and frustrations of the men who make their careers in the minor leagues.
From the Publisher:
Details the longest game in baseball history, a grueling minor-league matchup between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings that lasted more than eight hours, with the last of the 33 innings being postponed until two months later. 100,000 first printing.
Annotation:
More than just a chronicle of the longest professional baseball game (a minor-league contest between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings) ever played, Barry's book is a re-creation of a time (April 1981), a place (Pawtucket, R.I.), and a sense of possibility (two unknown third basemen in this game would eventually be inducted into the Hall of Fame: Cal Ripken Jr. and Wade Boggs) that embodied the fading romance of our national pastime. Why did players battle all night in a contest that had no impact on standings or their wallets? Why did fans remain to cheer them on? Barry tracked down everyone he could find who participated in this historical marathon and captured their feelings of duty, pride, and love.
