Man, the Cardinals were totally non-clutch last night, no thanks to the Dodgers. 

 

On May 31, 2003, when the Cubs won a 16-inning game over the Astros by the score of 1-0, Cubs organist Gary Pressy celebrated the victory by playing, "You're Sixteen," ("you're beautiful and you're mine"). 

 

What else was special about the length of that game.

It was very cold.  Farnsworth threw hard.

 I was at the game and I just remember I wanted it to end.  I was freezing.

Was that the one that ... the rookie left hander pitched the sixteenth and I want to say it was his first appearance.  Forget his name...

I just remember Farnsworth pitching a couple innings late in the game.  We went and sat right behind home for that.  He was throwing HARD!  Zambrano and Oswalt started.  I don't remember how they scored in the 16th, but I saw it.

Call me weak, whatever, but I looked it up.  Rookie is correct, Left hander is not.  Nor is First appearance.  He debuted about two weeks prior.  I was correct that I had forgotten his name. 

I vaguely recall watching from the warmth of my living room.  My wife kept walking in and asking, "Are they still playing?"

What was the estimated attendance at the end of that game, Spriggs?

Perhaps, but the Calendar didn't say that.

I remember the Cubs striking out a shitload of times(estimate).  As for the record, I think it was the longest that two teams went without scoring or it was the longest game with one run scored.

Wow... I think my eyes might have been frozen shut by the end of the game, but 649 would be my estimated attendance in the 16th inning.

Longest 1-0 game ever at Wrigley.
