1993 All-Star Game

This time the National League fired the first shot as American League starter Mark Langston was rocked for a two-run homer by Gary Sheffield that also brought in Barry Bonds.

The American League was not concerned and answered back with two home runs of their own. After shaking off the first-inning, the American League pitching staff got down to business and allowed only one run, four hits and didn't walk a batter.

Kirby Puckett, who had no extra-base hits in seven previous All-Star Games, hit a bases-empty homer in the second and had a run-scoring double in a three-run fifth-inning rally that broke a 2-2 tie and sent the American League to its sixth straight victory. The National League continued to raise the bar on their record for consecutive losses, but little did they know, the streak was about to end.

"I played with a lot of pride, a lot of class, and integrity. That is the part I will miss the most." - Kirby Puckett at his retirement press conference

During the 1993 Midsummer Classic, Barry Bonds tied the record for most doubles hit by a player during a single All-Star game with two.

This was the first All-Star game for the Florida Marlins — who sent Gary Sheffield and Bryan Harvey — and Colorado Rockies franchise — who sent Andres Galarraga .

Did you know that John Smoltz of the Atlanta Braves tied the record for most wild pitches during an All-Star game with two AND they both happened during the sixth inning?
