On October 24, 2009 — The Brother Elephants and Uni-President Lions duke it out for 17 innings in Game 6 of the 2009 Taiwan Series, setting a new Taiwan Series record for longest contest. At 6 hours and 14 minutes, it is also the longest contest (in duration) of any Chinese Professional Baseball League game, regular season or postseason, by over an hour. Records set include most players used by a club in a Taiwan Series game (22 by the Lions) and errors by both clubs (9). Elephants SS Sheng-Wei Wang ends it with a solo homer off Chien-San Kao to force a Game 7.
