FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»June 24, 1962: A marathon between the Tigers and Yankees concludes in the 22nd inning when Jack Reed's home run—his only one in the ML—gives New York and Jim Bouton a 9–7 victory. Reed replaced Pepitone in the 13th. For the Tigers, Phil Regan takes the loss and Rocky Colavito has seven hits. Bobby Richardson ties a mark by going to the plate 11 times. At an even seven hours, the game is the slowest extra-inning contest in league history and it is the longest game in innings in Yankee history.
