1967 All-Star Game

Although many All-Star Games had featured great pitching duels and stand-out performances on the mound, no other game to date had been as one sided as this one. "Strikeout classic" would have been a more appropriate title for this Midsummer Classic, which featured twelve pitchers - all of which had at least one strikeout for an All-Star record thirty strikeouts.

This game went into the record books for both the longest All-Star Game as well as the first game in which home runs accounted for all of the scoring.

"I'm proud of my whole career. I had a great career. I played with a lot of great players on good teams, especially in Cincinnati. We won championships and World Series. I'm proud of that. The All-Star games. I'll be more proud when I get elected to the hall of fame. That would be the top." - Tony Perez

Did you know that home runs accounted for all of the scoring during this, the longest All-Star Game to date?

A hall of fame ending that featured Tony Perez , the Most Valuable Player Award winner, hitting a home run off Catfish Hunter during the fifteenth inning.
