1935 Pittsburgh Crawfords The 1935 Pittsburgh Crawfords, champions of the Negro National League, are considered one of the greatest baseball teams ever assembled. Five Hall-of-Famers played on that club: Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Judy Johnson, Cool Papa Bell, and Oscar Charleston. Nodody can say for certain how the Crawfords would have fared against major league teams, but it's safe to assume they were better than the Pittsburgh Pirates that year. The Pirates were a fourth-place club in 1935.

Hall Of Famers Gather At Toots Shors Here's a terrific photo of a collection of baseball greats as they posed at Toots Shor's New York City restaurant with the proprietor. This was probably taken before they departed for the 1951 Hall of Fame induction ceremonies in Cooperstown. If someone had an autograph book that day and was savvy enough to collect these men's signatures, he could easily retire on what those would be worth today.

Mel Ott Fatal Car Crash On November 14, 1958 baseball Hall-of-Famer Mel Ott and his wife were seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. (The car in the photo was Ott's.) According to news reports, Ott, the former New York Giants slugger, pulled onto a fog-shrouded road and was struck by an oncoming vehicle whose 50-year-old driver died at the scene. A week later Ott died in a New Orleans hospital from his numerous injuries. He was just 49. Two other New York Giants' Hall-of-Famers, Frankie Frisch and Carl Hubbell, also died in similar car accidents. Hubbell died exactly 30 years to the day after Ott's death!

Addie Joss Benefit Game 1911 On July 24, 1911 the first 'all-star game' in MLB history took place at League Park in Cleveland. It predated the first official ASG by 22 years. The contest was a benefit game to raise money for the widow and two children of Cleveland pitcher Addie Joss, who had died of meningitis at age 31 three months earlier. Joss was a hugely popular and dominant pitcher whose death stunned the baseball world. The plan was to have a team of American League All-Stars face Joss' Indians. The idea was popular with the players but not so with AL president Ban Johnson who was worried about the disruption of the AL schedule. He threatened to fine any players who left their clubs to participate in the benefit game. In the end public pressure persuaded Johnson to withdraw his objection. The All-Stars, led by Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker, and several other future Hall-of-Famers, won the game 5-3. More than $11,000 was raised for the Joss family. Box seats that normally cost $1 were sold by special subscription for $100 apiece.

The 33-Inning Baseball Game - 1981 The longest game in pro baseball history occurred at McCoy Stadium in 1981 between the home Pawtucket (RI) Red Sox and visiting Rochester (NY) Red Wings of the AAA International League. It lasted a mind-boggling 33 innings. The game began on Saturday, April 18 and lasted 32 innings before being stopped. Play resumed on June 23. Only one additional inning was required as Pawtucket won 3-2 in the bottom of the 33rd inning. The game included future Hall-of-Famers Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken Jr. and 23 others who would eventually advance to MLB. Ominously the start of the game was delayed 30 minutes while a bank of lights was repaired. The game was tied 1-1 after nine innings. It remained knotted for the next 11 innings due to strong performances by both bullpens. In the top of the 21st inning, Red Wings' catcher Dave Huppert doubled, driving in a run giving Rochester a 2-1 lead. In the bottom of the inning, Pawtucket's Wade Boggs hit a double to score Dave Koza and tie the game 2-2. According to league rules, a curfew was supposed to take effect at 1 AM. However, plate umpire Dennis Cregg had an out-of-date rule book; it was missing that provision. Thus the game continued for 11 more scoreless innings. At 2 AM Pawtucket reliever Luis Aponte, who had pitched the seventh through tenth innings, received permission to go home. When Aponte got home at 3 AM, his wife Xiomara angrily asked, "Where have you been?" The pitcher responded, "At the ballpark." His wife snapped, "Like hell you have!" Because news of the game didn't appear in most newspapers until Monday, Aponte spent two nights on the couch. At the start of the 30th inning, the game became the longest in professional history, surpassing a 29-inning game in the Florida State League on June 14, 1966. As the game dragged on, food supplies ran out in the clubhouse and players took drastic measures to keep warm in the April chill. This included burning the benches in the bullpens and the broken bats in the dugouts. Meanwhile, Pawtucket general manager Mike Tamburro was attempting to reach IL president Harold Cooper so he could intervene. Cooper was eventually reached. Horrified, he ordered the game suspended after the completion of the current inning. At 4:09 AM, at the end of the 32nd inning, the game was stopped and would be resumed at a later date. At this point, there were just 19 fans left in the ballpark from the original 1,740. (One was the nephew of umpire Cregg. He had fallen asleep.) Each was given a lifetime pass to McCoy Stadium by Pawtucket owner Ben Mondor. As the players left the stadium they encountered people on their way to sunrise church services for Easter Sunday. Play resumed on June 23 when the Red Wings next returned to Pawtucket. On hand for the resumption was a sellout crowd of 5,746 fans, four television networks, and 140 members of the press from around the world. The game required just one inning and 18 minutes to finish. Pawtucket's first three batters singled. Dave Koza's drove home Marty Barrett. This photo shows on-deck hitter Wade Boggs congratulating Barrett as he touches the plate. The game had lasted a combined 8 hours and 25 minutes. A total of 882 pitches had been thrown.
