100 Inning Game

The 5th annual 100 Innings of Baseball game is accepting registrations. This is the longest baseball game ever played and has raised $373,000 for Curt's Pitch for ALS to help strike out Lou Gehrig's disease since its inception. In 2008, the game will fund the newly established Walter Bentson ALS Scholarship Fund, in honor of umpire chief, Walter Bentson. Learn more at

This year, you can benefit personally too, as there are fundraising incentives -- including a rebate for league fees! Read on.


Saturday August 30th through Sunday August 31st (Labor Day Weekend) - game lasts about 30 straight hours, starting Saturday morning and concluding Sunday at late afternoon. Play all day or all night, just a few hours or the entire game. We need you!


Adams Field in Quincy, MA


We start a ballgame at 9AM on Saturday morning and don't stop until 100 Innings are in the books. We play all day and all night and don't take any breaks!


Players can play as much or as little as they like! Many guys come and go throughout the course of the event. You will be able to let us know what times you want to play when you register. We divvy everyone up into two squads and use a continuous line-up and free defensive substitutions so everyone plays!


Registration is open at You can sign up as an individual or register your whole team together! Once registered you can manage all of your fundraising directly through the site.


The aim of the 100 Inning game is to support the mission of the Curt's Pitch for ALS Program. With your help, we can get closer to striking out Lou Gehrig's Disease. All participants are asked to do their best to fundraise from friends, family, co-workers, etc. in support of their participation, just like you might do in a Walk or Race.

All fundraising can be managed online and all players will be able to accept credit card, check, and cash donations once they register.


The biggest incentive in 2008 are Player Rebates. For every $1 you raise (up to $1,000) you are eligible to receive 20% back to go toward your baseball related costs for 2008, or whatever you please. So if you raise $1,000 you will earn a $200 rebate. This is to help boost fundraising efforts while simultaneously giving everyone an outlet to help subsidize their costs for playing ball. A win-win!

You can also win autographed memorabilia, invitations to Curt Schilling's end of the year reception, and more! See the full list online at
