   "It was an incredible experience. - said Giorgio Turconi, player as well as head of the Organizing Committee - Playing together for so a long time created the ideal conditions for establishing great relationships among the participants, that will last forever."

   The participants in the World's Longest Softball Fastpitch Game were men and women ranging from ages starting at 20 to over 60 years old. In total there were 54 players from nine countries: Bulgaria, Cuba, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, and Venezuela.

   Gergana Handjiyska of Bulgaria played in the World's Longest Softball Fastpitch Game and said, “It was just great, people from different countries… playing on shifts for six days, united by the love of softball. This is exactly what we were lobbying (around) for the past few years and to be part of (the long game) was just amazing.”
