This wasn’t your traditional beer shower that the Chicago Cubs’ players performed early Wednesday morning to commemorate the first major league victory for backup catcher John Baker.

“Beer, chocolate milk, hair gel, shampoo, body wash, and I got some more beer,” Baker said in describing the liquids his teammates doused him with. “It was great. Best shower I’ve ever taken.“

This celebration will stand out for the rest of Baker’s life as well as for the several hundred Cubs fans who stuck around to watch history as Baker pitched a scoreless 16th inning and scored the winning run to highlight a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

This game, which took six hours, 27 minutes, was the longest game (by time) in Cubs’ history. It surpassed the previous record of six hours, 10 minutes that it took the Cubs and Dodgers to play 21 innings on Aug. 17-18, 1982.

Baker was the first Cubs’ position player to pitch since Joe Mather on Aug. 27, 2012, against Milwaukee. Baker became the first position player to earn a win since first baseman Chris Davis of Baltimore on May 6, 2012, at Boston.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last Cubs position player believed to have earned a win as a pitcher was Jock Menefee in 1902. But Elias points out that Menefee won 12 games in 22 pitching appearances that season while playing 18 games at first base and 23 in the outfield. In those days, there wasn’t a significant distinction between pitchers and position players.

Baker, 33, hadn’t pitched since the summer of 2000 for Yarmouth-Dennis in the Cape Cod League. But his services were needed on the mound because starter Edwin Jackson needed 105 pitches just to throw four innings, and seven Cubs relievers combined to throw 11 scoreless innings and closer Hector Rondon wasn’t available. The Cubs likely will make a roster move before Wednesday night’s game to add a pitcher.

So Baker said he wasn’t about to say no to an opportunity to pitch at Wrigley Field during the longest game in Cubs history by time (six hours, 27 minutes), during the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field.

“I trust my stuff,” said Baker, who actually warmed up during the 13th inning but was saved until the 16th.
