This showed up in Saturday's mail.
Philip Lowry, author of Baseball's Longest Games and Green Cathedrals, sent this to me for finding an unknown marathon game. Phil is a fellow SABR member. He asked if I could share some info with the group that I lead (East Tennessee Chapter) to see if they could find more games. I took a look around my usual haunts and came up blank in Tennessee, but then I broadened my locations.
Here's what I found about the 20 inning game.
So, thanks, Phil. I'm honored to accept the certificate and more honored to assist in research.
I had expanded on a bit of Phil's work in Green Cathedrals a bit ago. I located the location of the Star Baseball Grounds in Covington, Kentucky.
I'm always a bit troubled by using the terms "I found" or "I located". The information is and has been sitting there, for all to see. I just connect the dots and share what I learn.
