Probably mentioned this before, Stan, but I stayed awake 'til the wee hours of the morning listening to that game on the earphone of my transistor radio as my younger brother slept in the bed next to mine. The game started at 8:00 pm PDT in San Francisco and lasted 4 hrs and 10 mins. It ended at 2:10 am back here in Wisconsin. I still got up in time to bicycle to church later in the morming to serve Catholic Mass, as I was an altar boy at the time.

Pitchers throwing 15+ innings in a game. Man, that was a different time.

Spahn recorded 46 outs with only 2 Ks. That's impressive.

Look at the pitch counts!!
Bothe were over 200 pitches.


BTW--I saw Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris hit HRs in a WS game at Sportsmens Park!!![]

Would have loved to see Bob Feller's opening day no-hitter against the WhiteSox.
My dad listened to it at his one room (1st-8th) grade school on the radio.
His teacher was a huge Cleveland fan
It was either 1937 or 1938 and Feller wasn't even out of his teens yet.

1940, actually. Close enough.

Yeah, it was 1940. I didn't check it out.
My dad is 88 and often get past years wrong.
I could have figured it out as he did remember he was in 8th grade.
Feller also was in his early 20's by then too.
