Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In All-Star Games the players are chosen by balloting. Millions of fans vote. It is Democracy at its most transcendent. All the voters get out of it is the loss of a three-cent stamp or a two-cent postal card. Dishonesty in counting the votes has never been charged." - Fred Schwed in How to Watch a Baseball Game (Fred Schwed, Harper Publishing, 1957, Page 33)

Did you know that the designated hitter became a permanent position during the 2010 Midsummer Classic and all future All-Star Games - regardless of the site where its played?

This will be the third All-Star Game ever played at the Kansas City Royals home field, the first two were the 1960 All-Star Game in Municipal Stadium and the 1973 All-Star Game in Royals Stadium.

When Tony La Russa came out of retirement to manage the N.L. All-Star Team he moved into a fourth place tie with Joe Torre for most All-Star Games managed: #1. Casey Stengel (10) #2. Walter Alston (9) #3. Joe McCarthy (7).
