The 100 Innings of Baseball Spectacular was born in 2004 with the arrival of Curt Schilling to the Boston Red Sox as a fundraiser for Curt's Pitch for ALS program to aid the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease. The world's longest game continues 100 straight innings and lasts about 33 consecutive hours, and to date has raised more than $600,000.

This year, Walter Bentson, our umpire chief, continues his ALS fight. He will be joined by Pete Frates, the Boston College and Lexington Blue Sox baseball player and internet sensation responsible for the most successful viral social media campaign in history: The Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $88.5 Million for ALS already -- just in the last 3 weeks.

Sign up for 100 Innings of Baseball today and start fundraising. Social media is an important fundraising tool. And be sure to directly ask friends, family and co-workers, too. We hope to push the envelope this year to keep the ALS fundraising exceeding all-time highs.

Supporting ALS is near and dear to the Boston community. Please do everything you can to help -- including playing as much of the 100 innings of baseball as you can. And spread the word!
