Langston Wertz Jr. at the Charlotte Observer came up with this one where two girls high school softball teams combined for 91 runs in one seven-inning game to set a state record…..

Would love to see that scorebook……

Here is the story on what happened from Mr. Wertz and score ’em till it hurts or you’ll lose your shirts…..Click Here to see all the details from this softball game…..

On Tuesday afternoon April 13, West Charlotte and Charlotte Vance played the wildest softball game Lions coach Norbert Reid said he’s ever seen.

The teams played at Vance for four hours and 10 minutes. Most softball games are 90 minutes or less. But most softball games don’t find the teams combining for 91 runs, either.

West Charlotte won 47-44 in seven regulation innings, and the teams smashed the existing N.C. record for fast-pitch softball runs – in 1999, Bunn beat Weldon 68-3. West Charlotte and Vance were just short of the national record of 94 combined runs set by East Machias Academy (MA) and Lubec (MA) in 1983. The next highest national total is 79.

West Charlotte’s 47 runs is eighth-most ever scored by an N.C. team in a fast-pitch game. Vance is No. 10.

And they did it in the same game.
