The Midsummer Classic is upon us! And speaking of the All-Star Game, on July 7, 1936, Major League Baseball experienced the fourth of these annual exhibitions. It proved to be the first victory for the National League, winning 4-3 at Braves Field in Boston. The American League won the first three All-Star contests.
And, if you’re curious, the anniversary of the first All-Star Game was yesterday, played on July 6, 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The American League won that game 4-2.
