Brandon Belt breaks Major League Baseball record for longest at-bat, goes 21 pitches
Apr 23, 2018, 12:32
With a record-setting at-bat, a solo home run on the ninth pitch of another plate appearance and a grand total of 40 pitches faced on Sunday, Belt paced the Giants to a 4-2 win on a day when pace of play was the least of the Giants concerns.
Belt's at-bat was the longest in Major League history, breaking a record set by Ricky Gutierrez against Bartolo Colon on June 26, 1998. In his fourth largest at-bat he hit on on the first pitch - even a curve ball from Jim Johnson - to get one and also he flied out onto a first pitch slider on his own.
Brandon Belt took the concept of "working the count" to a new level on Sunday. He swung and missed simply as soon as.
As he did, Angels pitching coach Charles Nagy and catcher Martin Maldonado came out to talk to Barria - not so much to advise him as much as to give him a breather. Barria had thrown 9 pitches to Joe Panik, who hit a leadoff single, earlier than throwing 21 to Belt.
