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.
