On Sunday, Brandon Belt broke a major league record for the longest at bat.

21 pitches.

Almost 13 minutes.

On one hand, it probably made for some extremely boring baseball. On the other hand, it was a truly admirable feat. To be able to fight off that many pitches, and to take the pitcher that deep into his pitch count- its flat out crazy. I would imagine it contributed mightily to Jonny Cueto and the Giants getting a W, even though the at-bat ended with a fly out to left.

Date Starting Pitcher
Saturday, June 25 @ 1:10 pm A's Jared Koenig vs. Royals Brad Keller
