They are easy to follow and will be fun, challenging and immensely rewarding for teachers and students alike. The book features a foreword by Paul Roseby, CEO and Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre.

Baseball is the only major team sport that doesn’t feature a clock, and there’s a familiar saying among fans that as long as outs remain, the game can, theoretically, go on forever. Every now and again, it nearly does, as author Phil Lowry demonstrates. The product of more than four decades of research, this book catalogs baseball games from around the world and throughout history that lasted 20 or more innings, stretched five or more hours, or ended after 1:00 am. Lowry also examines probability models to predict how often games of unusual length will occur.
