"I was getting tired by the eighteenth inning, but the players kept telling me: 'Just one inning, Joe, and we'll get a run.' ( George ) Stallings never did ask me if I wanted to come out. But the batters were griping to stop the game. I didn't want to stop . It was getting dark and there were no lights in those days. ( Barry ) McCormick , the umpire, after talking to the two managers, finally called the game after 26 innings." - Joe Oeschger (Lynwood Carranco, "Joe Oeschger Remembers", Source )

Joe Oeschger set the Major League record for most innings pitched in a single game on May 1, 1920 . Believe it or not, Oeschger's record setting twenty-six innings pitched has been tied once, by one pitcher - his opposing pitcher in the same exact game, Leon Cadore .

Joe Oeschger / Leon Cadore, Innings Pitched Record Setting Game
Joe Oeschger / Leon Cadore (Innings Pitched Record) | The Brooklyn Daily Eagle | May 2, 1920
Did you know that Joe Oeschger, on September 8, 1921 , threw exactly three pitches to Bevo LeBourveau , in the fourth inning, all three were strikes, then threw exactly three pitches to Cy Williams , all three were strikes, then rounded off the inning by throwing exactly three pitches to Ed Konetchy , all three of which were strikes as well - the first recorded immaculate inning by a Braves pitcher?

On April 30, 1919 , Joe Oeschger went all-the way in a twenty-inning tie, versus Burleigh Grimes , who also was the only pitcher used that day. Oeschger's inning pitched record will never be broken and his two-twenty inning complete games, a feat never matched before or after him, will never be duplicated.
