This day in baseball: The NL’s first ASG win

The Midsummer Classic is upon us!  And speaking of the All-Star Game, on this day in 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 6 July 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago.  The American League won that game 4-2.
