Google’s Doodle baseball game is the perfect time waster before July 4
It’s the third of July, which ideally means that work is winding down and you’re getting ready for the long weekend that lies ahead. If you’re seeking for something to do to pass the time, Google discovered an exceptionally useful solution: The site’s Doodleon is a cartoon character. Wednesday is a playable baseball game in which a slew of July 4th-themed foods seek to score as many runs as they can against a surprisingly difficult peanut pitcher before being struck out by the ball. We at For The Win take our Google Doodle games extremely seriously; in fact, we spent half a day in June of 2017 competing against one another in the cricket game they provided for the occasion.
Since of now, it has proven useless (I apologize in advance for all of the dad jokes), as my career-high is 24:00 minutes.
And at first, I thought that was quite achievable since the peanut tosses some slow pitches straight down the middle of the diamond.
UPDATE OF IMPORTANCE: After further practice, I’ve discovered that the key is to pay attention to the color of the pitcher’s cap, which tells which pitch is about to be thrown.
- According to what I can determine, the pattern is as follows: A white fastball down the middle is equivalent to an ordinary fastball down the middle.
- Yellow indicates a zig-zag pattern.
- Softball slow-pitch is represented by the color blue.
- To make matters even better, merely putting your bat on the ball gets in at least a single, so you don’t have to worry about swinging for the fences.
- Wishing you the best of luck in both scoring a lot of runs and being productive.

The Highest Scoring Games – Society for American Baseball Research
Important Note from the Editor: The numbers presented here are for the 1979 season. If you remember back to May 17, 1979, when the Phillies defeated the Cubs 23-22in 10 innings at Wrigley Field in Chicago, it sparked an investigation into previous exceptionally high scoring games throughout baseball history. One of the great ironies of baseball history is that the only game in which a larger two-team score was ever recorded was also played at Wrigley Field, and between the same two ball teams.
- In the 1979 game, the Phillies watched a 21-9 lead evaporate before ultimately claiming victory in the 10th inning on Mike Schmidt’s second home run of the game (the Cubs’ Dave Kingman hit three home runs), which came off bullpen ace Bruce Sutter’s pitching performance.
- The 1979 game holds the record for the greatest score in an extra-inning game, as well as the record for the highest score in a game decided by a single run (both in 1979).
- Prior to the 1979 spectacular, Brooklyn of the Players League (a one-year major league) beat Buffalo 28-16 on July 12, 1890, at Brooklyn Stadium, in the second-highest scoring game in baseball history.
- That game and the previous one set records for the highest score in a one-run game in nine innings and the highest score by a single team in a single game, respectively.
- The Athletics were on a one-day excursion to Cleveland at the time of the game (no Sunday ball was permitted in Philadelphia at the time), and Athletics Manager Connie Mack brought just two pitchers with him.
- As a result, Mack brought in reliever Eddie Rommel, who would later become an umpire, who was obliged to hurl the rest of the way.
- Despite the fact that Rommel had thrown three shutout innings the day before, the Athletics were a part of a period in which they had played doubleheaders on July 7, 8, and 9, with another scheduled for July 11.
Brooklyn defeated Syracuse by a score of 22-21 in Brooklyn in an American Association game played while the circuit was still a major league in 1890 – the greatest one-run decision in the history of the game, which lasted nine innings.
The Boston Red Sox defeated the Philadelphia Athletics 22-14 on June 29, 1950, in a game that was played in Shibe Park, rather than the more pleasant Fenway Park in Boston.
Earlier in June, the Red Sox trounced the lowly St.
With a batting average of.302 that season, Boston became the last major league club to record a season batting average in excess of 300 points.
In terms of the most points scored by a single club in a single game, the Chicago NL team, then known as the White Stockings, established the mark with a 36-7 victory over Louisville in 1897, when they were known as the White Stockings.
There have been over 150 games since 1900 in which a team scored 20 or more runs in a single game (including two games in which both sides achieved the feat), however there have been no contemporary games in which a team scored 30 or more runs.
The Chicago White Sox were the most recent team to accomplish the feat in 1955, when they defeated the Kansas City Athletics by a score of 29-6, tying the Boston Red Sox’s 29-4 victory against the St.
Since 1900, the St.
In the two National League games between Philadelphia and Chicago, which were played in 1922 and 1979 respectively, are the highest scoring games in major league history for both clubs combined, as seen in the following linescores: Aside from those games, the linescores of the Syracuse-Brooklyn AA game in 1890, which holds the record for the highest one-run decision in nine innings in major league history, and Chicago’s 36-7 win over Louisville in 1897, which holds the record for the most runs scored by one team in a major league game, are included.
Take note that the Cubs had innings in which they scored 10 runs and innings in which they scored 14 runs in a very inconsistent offensive performance in 1922. The 17th of May, 1979
The date was August 25, 1922.
The date was June 29, 1897.
The date was April 18, 1890.
