2003 All-Star Game Box Score

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the box score to the 2003 Midsummer Classic which was played on July 15, 2003 at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, Illinois.

"I don't consider myself a home run hitter. I'm just a guy who goes up there and gets my hits. I'm just trying to set the table for the rest of the crew. I'm not a homer hitter and for something like this to happen is pretty rare." - Hank Blalock

There were a record tieing ( 1988 Midsummer Classic ) thirty first-time All-Star players on the official rosters and thirty-two total if you count (Major League Baseball does not) Shawn Chacon & Marcus Giles who were replaced on the National League roster due to injuries.

Did you know that of the seventy players selected to the 2003 All-Star squads, forty-nine were from the United States, six were from the Dominican Republic, five were from Puerto Rico, three were from Japan, three were from Venezuela, & one (each) from Canada, Mexico, Colombia & Curacao?

This was the first All-Star Game "where it counted" (the winner was awarded home field advantage during the World Series), the first with a Colorado Rockies home run ( Todd Helton ), the first for thirty first-time players (see fact one above) and the first in U.S. Cellular Field (but the fourth in Comiskey Park).
