1966 All-Star Game Play by Play

Retrosheet is a not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1989 for the purpose of computerizing play-by-play accounts of as many pre-1984 major league games as possible. Their research is without parallel, beyond exceptional, and in a league by itself. Baseball Almanac is pleased to present this play-by-play account of the 1966 All-Star Game courtesy of Retrosheet.

"Over one hundred fans were treated for effects of the heat, and many people abandoned their expensive box seats in the early innings until things cooled off a bit." - The Midsummer Classic (2002)
