This Day in History: 1995 – Baltimore Orioles shortstop Cal Ripken Jr. plays in his 2,131st consecutive game, breaking “Iron Horse” Lou Gehrig’s record for most consecutive games played.

Fact of the Day:  Cal Ripken went on to play in 2,632 games in a row before ending the games played streak by voluntarily removing himself from a game against the New York Yankees on September 19, 1998.

Strange, but True:  In 1981, the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings, two triple-A baseball teams, took to the field to play their regularly-scheduled game. They ended up playing 33 innings. The game lasted a total of 8 hours and 25 minutes, making it the longest game of baseball ever played.
