1982 All-Star Game
In 1982, the All-Star Game moved across the border and was played in Canada's Olympic Stadium. It was the first Midsummer Classic ever to be held outside of the United States. It also represented one of the worst performances ever put on by the American League. Somehow they managed a single run in the first inning and were left swinging at air the rest of the game.
With two out in the second, Dennis Eckersley walked Dale Murphy and Dave Concepcion (with only one home run in three-hundred twenty-eight at-bats) homered. The National League scored again on Eckersley in the third when Ruppert Jones tripled and scored on Pete Rose's sacrifice fly.
The American League gave it a shot in the seventh, putting runners on second and third with one out, but Mario Soto struck out Willie Wilson and Buddy Bell. This marked the eleventh consecutive victory for the National League but unfortunately for them, things were finally about to change.
