 Team History
On August 30, 1916, the Winston-Salem Twins, playing in the North Carolina State League, were involved in the quickest game in baseball history. It was the last day of the season and twanted to catch an early train out of Asheville, NC, so they agreed with the home Asheville Tourists to start their afternoon games 30 minutes early (without bothering to advise the umpire, who only showed up after three innings had already been played). The players ran to their positions and back, the pitchers lobbed the ball towards the batters, who swung on every pitch, and would run until tagged out. The game started at 1:28 and ended at 1:59 with a 2-1 win by Winston-Salem, with all three runs scoring on solo homers. The total game time of 31 minutes was one minute faster than the Southern Association game of September 17, 1910 between Atlanta and Mobile, which is often listed as the quickest on record. The game received only local coverage, and was entirely forgotten until a researcher uncovered its account 50 years later.
