A friendly game of kickball in Connecticut ended after 345 innings with a score of 164-117 and a Guinness world record.
Two teams in Naugatuck raising money for cancer research began playing Friday morning and finally stopped Sunday after 54 hours. That broke the Guinness record for the longest kickball marathon of 51 hours set in May of last year by students at Padua Franciscan High School in Parma, Ohio, whose game ended with a score of 431-306 after 474 innings.
The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that 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.
