Today marks the 29th anniversary of the longest game in Major League Baseball history, when the Chicago White Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers concluded 25 innings in 8 hours and 6 minutes. The game started at 7:30 p.m. on May 8, 1984, and at 1 a.m. on May 9, the umps paused play and picked up in the 18th inning the next day. It ended with a 7-6 victory for Chicago.

After 26 innings, the score remained 1-1 and it was called a tie.
