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 $470,000.
For 2010, proceeds benefit 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.
Ballplayers from across Metro-Boston and New England are expected to play nonstop, all day and night, until 100 innings are completed.
