Kansas City Royals, New York Mets and the Longest World Series Games of All Time (Number of Innings)
Ladies and gentlemen, tonight you saw (or certainly heard about by now) one of the three longest games in all of World Series history. In 111 World Series and 639 World Series games, including 2015’s Game 1, only three times have we gone into the 14th inning.
The Kansas City Royals were the winners this time around, preceded by two other American League victors. It was the Chicago White Sox in 2005 – then, almost 100 years before that (89 to be exact) – it was the Boston Red Sox.
So, uh, these kind of things don’t happen that often.
Both Sox went on to win their respective World Series. Uh, oh, New York Mets’ fans.
But hold on…let’s dig a little deeper.
