Live Video: 100 Innings of Baseball for Charity
- Updated: October 9, 2010
The Charity: ALS (aka Lou Gehrig‘s Disease)
|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.
For the 7th Annual game 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.
