I believe the longest rain delay came during the 2008 world series, game 5 between the Phillies and the Rays. After the game was delayed because of the heavy rain and cold, the games resumed 2 days later, when the storm passed.

Why does baseball delay for rain?

A rain delay is called in rain especially if there is lightening in the area because of the danger to all, but also because of the possible injury to players with a wet baseball, slick playing surface, and the inability to see a fly-ball. The wet ball could cause lack of ball control on the part of the pitcher, or for that matter the catcher and fielders as well. The possibility of slipping on the wet surface could cause injury to any player. Also, with the inability to properly follow the ball in flight due to the rain, more injuries could result.
