Cubs Fact:

Billy Williams and Ron Santo set a Cubs franchise record by playing in all 164 games for the team in 1965.
Please don't feed the psychos.

This would be my explanation: They didn't pick up postponed games where they left off back then. They had two games that year that ended in ties (a 9 inning game and opening day - 11 innings). They count the stats and replay the whole game (as a new game). I assume they were called on account of darkness - I know the season opener was.

Huh.

That's completely new to me.

Thanks for hipping me to some education, Spriggs.
