Erie whiffleballers play 24-hour game...

I've been slacking on here, but this aught to redeem myself at least a little...

ALBION -- No one struck out when it came to playing a marathon whiffle-ball game over the weekend for charity and a scholarship fund...They recorded the marathon on tape. It began at 7 p.m. Friday and ended at about 7 p.m. Saturday. (Whiffle-ball game for charity lasts 24 hours, sets record - Erie Times-News)

I think these stats speak for themselves...

  • Final Score: 935 - 514, the game ended in the top of the 149th inning (there was no need for the home team to bat in the bottom half...with a 421 run lead)
  • According to one of the player's wives, some players hit 150 to 200 home runs (with a 64-foot fence, she's probably not exaggerating that bad)

The players raised $1500 for charity, and (surprise, surprise) they could find themselves in the Guinness Book of World Records.
