This day in baseball: Bigbee comes to the plate 11 times

In a 22-inning game against the Dodgers on August 22, 1917, Pirates outfielder Carson Bigbee set a major league record with 11 at-bats. Bigbee collected 6 hits with two RBIs in Pittsburgh’s 6-5 loss to Brooklyn.

Thirteen other players have since matched Bigbee’s single game at-bats mark.
