MINNEAPOLIS - You can't win em' all.
Anyone who has played team sports knows that axiom is true, and it fits this week's effort to set a new mark for the world's longest baseball game.
On Monday PHP baseball started a baseball game with the goal of continuing to play for 62 hours, which would set a new record with the Guiness Book.
Unfortunately, it was not to be. A PHP Baseball spokesman says due to fatigue and the inability for enough players to continue the marathon PHD ended its quest to break the record for the World's Longest Game.
The event, which was staged to raise money for charity, did last 40 hours, 15 minutes and 26 seconds. In a written statement, PHP said "The team was disappointed not to break the Guinness record but we are all proud of the money we've raised and the awareness we've drawn towards the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota."
