Another Group Breaks World Record

Well it’s happened again. Another group of people in the New England area have set a brand new world record for the longest wiffleball game. You may remember a couple of stories on here last summer about the world record. Last year a group of kids in Tewksbury played for 32 hours but did not get the official recognition of Guinness. A previous official World Record of 24 hours was still the longest wiffleball game until this past weekend when Robert DeAngelis and 7 of his friends decided to team up with Special Olympics of Connecticut to make this event happen in Norwich, CT. They played for 25 hours, 4 minutes, and 53 seconds. After 150 innings the final score between the two teams (Rutland Country Store Red and Rutland County Store Blue) was 334 to 251. What’s important to remember here is not only did they not play 25 continuous hours but they did it in the rain. Connecticut was covered with severe thunderstorms and the whole operation almost didn’t happen. They lucked out and only had rain to contend with. I wonder how many of them have pneumonia?
