50 years ago...


The 1967 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 38th. Twelve pitchers combined for an All-Star Game record 30 strikeouts. In the top of the 15th inning, Tony Pérez hit a one-out home run off of AL pitcher Catfish Hunter, then in his fifth inning of relief, to give the NL a lead that won..

Thanks for posting that.  My childhood hero Richie Allen with the first home run.  Should have been in the hall of fame with all his talent.

Dick Allen when he played with the White Sox.  An odd duck, but one helluva ball player...

Apparently he always wanted to be called Dick.  He even messed up with the Phillies when they brought him back at the end of his career.  But he could hit.  Used to swing that 40 ounce bat.

Since this game doesn't mean anything anymore do they call it after 9 innings if it's still tied?

If the American League has used all their bench players in a tied game, they deserve to lose, Maddon will out manage them for the Nationals League.

As far as I know, it will be played until completion.

The first tie in an All-Star Game occurred on July 31, 1961 at Fenway Park in Boston when the game was called at 1–1 after nine innings due to rain; the only other rain-shortened game was in 1952, but the National League defeated the American League, 3–2 in five innings.

The 2002 All-Star Game, held in Milwaukee, ended in controversy in the 11th inning when both teams ran out of substitute players available to pitch in relief. At that point, Commissioner Bud Selig (a Milwaukee native and former owner of the Brewers) declared that the game would end after 11 innings, and it ended in a 7–7 tie. The crowd booed and threw beer bottles onto the field, and the media were highly critical of this unsatisfactory conclusion.

It seems kinda dull when we're left with the second rate all stars to finish out a tied game.  Maybe allowing the starters to pinch hit later in the game would be fun.
