100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular Charity Game for ALS

The 100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular was born in 2004 with the arrival of Curt Schilling to the Boston Red Sox as a fundraiser for Curt’s Pitch for ALS program to aid the fight against Lou Gehrig‘s disease. The world’s longest game continues 100 straight innings and lasts about 33 consecutive hours, and to date has raised $464,000.
In 2010, proceeds will support ALS and the Walter Bentson Scholarship Fund, a fund that supports the children of PALS (patients of ALS) for their higher education. Walter Bentson is president of the Boston Park League, the oldest amateur baseball league in the country, and is also the Umpire Chief of several amateur baseball leagues. He also has ALS.

When: Saturday, October 9 @ 9AM until Sunday, October 10 afternoon (approximately 33 hours after the first pitch).

Where: Adams Field in Quincy, MA
