Games Taking 20 or More Innings

Discussion in the Around Asia forum
Games Taking 20 or More Innings
I do research on games taking 20 or more innings. So far I have found these games in Asia. But I am certain that I am missing many more. If you know of one missing from this list, please contact Phil Lowry at plowry1176 at aol d0t com and I will correct the missing information. Thank you very much.

About

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
