Lefthander "King" Carl Hubbell worked three shutout innings as the National League starter. His performance was highlighted by consecutive strikeouts of five future Hall of Famers: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin. The streak ended with a single by Bill Dickey, another future Hall of Famer.
Goat: One Uggla night in 2008
Dan Uggla's All-Star appearance with the National League was so forgettable that strikeouts were the highlight. Uggla had three whiffs in four at-bats. When Uggla put the ball in play, he grounded into a double play. Uggla also had three errors, two in the same inning.
Hero: Walk-it-off Williams in 1941
Ted Williams completed a ninth-inning comeback by hitting a two-out, three-run homer that gave the American League a 7-5 victory. Williams homered against righthander Claude Passeau, who gave up a 5-2 lead in the final two innings.
Goat: Hammaker gets slammed in 1983
In the 50th anniversary game, lefthander Atlee Hammaker allowed the first grand slam in All-Star history. Fred Lynn had the memorable homer during a seven-run third inning against Hammaker. The moment scarred Hammaker. He was 22-15 lifetime before Lynn's blast and 37-52 after the homer.
Hero: Ripkin rips it in 2001
This mid-summer night was truly all about Cal Ripken Jr. In his final season, the veteran ironman was chosen to play third base, but in a made-for-TV moment, Alex Rodriguez forced Ripken to shortstop much to the pleasure of the fans. Ripken then homered in his first plate appearance and was greeted with a standing ovation. He became one of four players with multiple All-Star Game MVP awards (1991 and 2001).
Goat: Not you, Joe in 1936
Even the best can have forgettable moments. In his All-Star debut, outfielder Joe DiMaggio ended a 0-for-5 game by lining to second baseman Leo Durocher for the final out with the tying run in scoring position. DiMaggio also had an error in the outfield.
Hero: Ichiro's in the park in 2007
Ichiro Suzuki's blazing speed is part of the reason he's become a perennial All-Star. Ichiro used that speed to win himself MVP of the 2007 game after hitting the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star Game history. He did it by sending a Chris Young pitch to deep right-center field and racing around the bases before the throw home could get him.
Goat: Hoffman blows it in 2006
With the All-Star Game counting as the determining factor for homefield advantage in the World Series, Trevor Hoffman picked the wrong time to blow a save. With the NL leading 2-1 in the ninth inning, Hoffman got the first two outs. Then, everything fell apart. After letting two men on, Hoffman got two strikes on Michael Young before the Texas shortstop tripled in the tying and go-ahead runs to get the AL the win.
Hero: Bo knows a home run in 1989
Bo Jackson was in the process of taking the sports world by storm when he stepped to the plate in the first inning of the 1989 All-Star Game in Anaheim. Put in the lineup by AL manager Tony La Russa to get some speed at the top of the order, Jackson decided to flex his muscles instead. He sent a Rick Reuschel pitch 450 feet for a home run in the first inning that helped get the AL a win and earned himself game MVP honors.
Goat: Clemens roughed up in the 1st in 2004
In his hometown of Houston, righthander Roger Clemens started for the National League. His grand moment quickly came apart. Manny Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano had homers in the six-run first against Clemens.
