Greatest Moment in All-Star Game History

When thinking about my favorite All-Star Game memory, this is one that always rises to the top. The 1999 All-Star Game at Fenway Park was one of the greatest spectacles in All-Star Game history. Part of the moment was the pure magic at Fenway Park, but I will never forget a weak Ted Williams riding around in a golf cart, being greeted on the mound by all of the All-Stars. Then he managed to stand-up and throw the ceremonial 1st pitch, despite being in poor health. Watching the video still gives me chills and makes me relive the emotions running through me as I witnessed that event live, 12 years ago. Then, as if to honor the greatest hitter to ever live, Pedro Martinez was lights out to begin the game for the Red Sox, striking out the 1st 5 NL All-Stars en route to 2 perfect innings. It was a great event for a great ballpark. What’s your favorite All-Star Moment? Leave us a comment.
