Juan Bobo and the Longest       

Game in Baseball History

One day, Juan Bobo brought his friend El Brujo de Guayama (the witch doctor of Guayama) to the stadium.  El Brujo pulled a big black finger out of a coconut and rubbed it over home plate

The stadium was strange the next day.

Don Q fired his 98 mph heat…and the first batter hit the first pitch. He fired again…and the second batter hit the first pitch.  For the rest of the inning, every batter hit the first pitch. They weren’t all hits and no one scored, but every batter connected on the very first pitch.

It happened to both teams throughout the day. The entire game ran like a runaway train and, when the night lights came on, the scoreboard showed 178 innings.

The opposing team manager, Adam Clayton Powell VI, called a press conference to announce his feeling that “something funny is going on here.”

The next day, the Barones pitcher quit when he saw a ghost standing next to him on the pitcher’s mound.  Powell called another press conference to announce that the Criollos were not playing fair, and had a recruited a ghost to intimidate his team.

Pressed for details about this ghost – its origin, whereabouts, motives, or financial interest in the Criollos – Powell was uncertain.

Huh?  

Two days later, the Criollos and the Barones were still deadlocked after 317 innings – the longest game in baseball history.
