The fit between these fitted probabilities and empirical data is significantly better than the fit between our theoretical probabilities and the empirical data. 01 percent, which is very close. Conclusions on the Relative “Rarity” of Record-Long Games So how “rare” are record-long marathons: Boston’s 26 innings in the major league category set in 1920, Pawtucket’s 33 innings in the minor league category set in 1981, and Mito, Japan’s 45 innings in the “other” category (schools/amateur/international/women) set in 1983?

26623 innings). In a negative binomial distribution, the mean = 1/(1-k). 5559 we used above. 87 percent, we can calculate the fitted probabilities. These are also shown below. The fit between these fitted probabilities and empirical data is significantly better than the fit between our theoretical probabilities and the empirical data. 01 percent, which is very close. Conclusions on the Relative “Rarity” of Record-Long Games So how “rare” are record-long marathons: Boston’s 26 innings in the major league category set in 1920, Pawtucket’s 33 innings in the minor league category set in 1981, and Mito, Japan’s 45 innings in the “other” category (schools/amateur/international/women) set in 1983?

How many games in the “other” category have been played, including school games, amateur games, international games, and women’s games? I have estimated this number as ten times the number of minor league games, or 14,189,020. 29 Thus, my estimate of the total number of baseball games ever played through 2005, at all levels and at all locations world-wide, is 199,906 + 1,418,902 + 14,189,020 = 15,807,828. It should be noted many “other” category games are scheduled for only 6 or 7 innings, and some minor league games are scheduled for only 7 innings.
