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.

Once again, the game went into extra innings that resulted in a National League win. The senior circuit was shut out twelve straight innings — the third through the fourteenth. The Americans were shut out the last nine. Richie Allen had homered against Dean Chance in the second; in the sixth, Brooks Robinson tied it with a home run against Fergie Jenkins. There it remained until the fifteenth, when Tony Perez, the game's Most Valuable Player, sent Catfish Hunter's pitch over the left-field fence.

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.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"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
