Looking ahead, looking back: All-Star Edition
With our prints on display at the MLB All-Star FanFest this week, here are some highlights from All-Star Games past.
1983 - The 50th All-Star Game takes place at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The American League ended a 12-year drought and won big, 13-3.
1936 - The NL wins its first All Star Game after losing each of the first three.
1952 - A rain-shortened All-Star Game ends in just five innings in Philadelphia because of rain. The NL won this one, 3-2. Luckily, this year’s game is in San Diego, where it never ever rains.
1946 - Ted Williams headlines a slew of Red Sox All-Stars at Fenway Park with a 4-4 effort including two homers as the American League topped the NL, 12-0.
