There is a group of 39 hard core softball players currently playing what they hope will be recognized as the world’s longest slo pitch game. They’ve been playing since last weekend at a park in Leduc, just south of Edmonton – through rain, thunderstorms, hail, darkness and cold.
They have less than 24 hours left to break the current record. That will occur about 8 a.m. Saturday – and the teams plan to continue playing until Sunday morning.
We’ll be there Saturday morning to photograph the moment when the record is broken – and we’ll be posting pictures of the historic event!
Come join us at Wm. F. Lede park in Leduc (map – http://goo.gl/maps/9nljt) early Saturday morning for a bit of sports photography and to cheer on the players! We’ll probably show up about 7:30, hope to see you there!
The record was unofficially broken Saturday morning at 7:04 pending verification from Guinness officials! The two teams playing at the time took a very short time out to share a toast and celebrate.
The teams will continue to play until noon tomorrow to cement their place in history.
