Who had the world's longest at Bat?

If you’re looking for an actual statistic on who was ever the longest at bat, there really is no definitive answer. Baseball has kept details on every pitch thrown since the 1980s. Before that time, stats such as “Total pitches thrown in a game” were kept but not on a batter-by-batter or pitch-by-pitch basis. Because of this, stats such as “Most pitches to one batter” are not recognized by Major League Baseball.

However, if there were an answer, Roy Thomas would certainly be a contender for holding this statistic. He once fouled off twenty-two pitches, bringing the count up 3 to 2. If that’s true, he would have been pitched at least twenty-six pitches (twenty-two fouled, three balls, and one ball that he put in play.)

History has also passed down the story of Luke Appling who once fouled off seventeen pitches before hitting a triple. The story continues to say that he did this to seek revenge against a team owner who wouldn’t give him a box of baseballs to hand out to the fans.
