    History in the making?

    The Phillies-Nationals game is in the second inning at midnight. This is after a 4 and a half hour rain delay. Does anyone know what the latest a east coast game has ended at? This one looks like it might last till 3 or maybe later if there are extras like wed. night. Im sure there will be lots of nats fans left at the end of this one.

    Re: History in the making?

    Here is a shocker. The game is now almost in the 5th. Only four hits and the only run came on a Ryan Church solo shot. Must be an agreement between the players to swing for home runs as to not have any long innings. I guarantee the Nats would prefer getting home quickly as to actually winning. Gotta be a kangaroo court fine for any pitcher that walks anybody.

    Re: History in the making?

    Geez...a four and half hour rain delay...how bout what's the longest rain delay ever?

    Also, is it common for players to have an agreement like that when a game has lasted as long as that one has or when there is such a blowout? I wouldn't be surprised by it, and we know that coaches put in subs when there are large leads, but I just haven't heard that often of an agreement to swing for the fences...I have a feeling I am taking that one too literally and if so, sorry bout that one.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Nats were thinking that. The Phils want to win this one in the worst way. I'm actually shocked that the Phils are losing now. I figure this is a game the Nats HATE to play. But as an NFL coach once said, "You play to win the game." So maybe they are doing that.

    September 11, 1974:

    The Mets lost 4-3 to the Cardinals during a "long-distance" marathon night game on September 11th. After seven hours and twenty-five innings, the outing became the longest game to a decision in Major League history. In the end, New York had batted one-hundred three times and St. Louis was not far behind with ninety-nine plate appearances. A record one-hundred seventy-five official at-bats were recorded, with a Major League record of forty-five runners left stranded. Despite the historical moment, only a thousand fans were on hand when it finally ended at 3:13 a.m.

    Fan-friendliness? Who cares about school-aged kids that were brought to that game by their parents? Who cares about working-Joes and working-Janes who have to get up at 6:00 am to get ready for their normal jobs?

    Make a buck & get the game over with no matter what! Screw the fans.

    I think the two teams were looking at the fact that this was the Phillies last trip into DC and that the team would very likely have meaning for the
    post-season, therefore, get the game instead of having to come back to DC to play it out. Had this been earlier in the year, they would have called it and rescheduled.

    You are right and I understand that, metz. I hope the Nats refund money to any fan who asks due to the circumstance. It would be the right thing to do.. and they may well do that (I hope!).

    I don't know if they still do this but the American League had a curfew on their games. Like no inning could start past 1 a.m. or something like that.

    And last night worked out just as well for the Phillies as that game in Milwaukee did for the Reds.

    That was a 5:45 rain delay. IIRC, it was scheduled as an afternoon game that turned into a night game played in large puddles with players leaving rooster tails.

    Some interesting stuff in here...
