Strange News – Kickball, A New World Record
A friendly game of kickball in Naugatuck, Connecticut just set a new world record — for the world’s longest kickball game! How long? How about 345 innings, over 54 hours with a final score of 164-117! Two teams in Naugatuck raising money for cancer research began playing Friday morning and finally stopped Sunday afternoon. That broke the Guinness record for the longest kickball marathon of 51 hours set in May of last year by students in Parma, Ohio. The Connecticut game was played in honor of two local children who survived cancer and raised more than $45,000 for cancer research. There were 21 people on each team, and players came from as far away as Atlanta and New Hampshire.
