Rotblatt

Rotblatt is the world's longest intramural sport. Played once each spring, this marathon softball game begins at sunrise and lasts one inning for each year of Carleton's existence since it was founded in 1866. It is Rotblatt tradition for players to both bat and field with a beverage of their choice in one hand.
