The 1967 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 38th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game was played on July 11, 1967, at Anaheim Stadium in Anaheim, California. The game resulted in a 2–1 victory for the NL.[1] At 15 innings, it was the longest All-Star Game by innings ever. It held this distinction by itself until 2008, when that year's game was also decided in 15 innings.

Scoring summary

The NL scored first when Dick Allen, the lead off batter in the top of the second inning, hit a home run off of AL pitcher Dean Chance.[4]

The AL tied the score in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, Brooks Robinson hit a home run off of NL relief pitcher Ferguson Jenkins.[4] The score remained unchanged through the ninth inning, forcing the game into extra innings.

In the top of the 15th inning, Tony Pérez hit a one-out home run off of AL pitcher Catfish Hunter, then in his fifth inning of relief, to give the NL a lead it would not relinquish.[4]

Game notes and records

Rod Carew became the first (and as of 2008, only) rookie second baseman to start an All-Star Game.[5]

The two teams' pitching staffs combined for 30 strikeouts. Until 2008, this would be the All-Star Game record for most combined strikeouts in a single game.[2] Each of the 12 pitchers used by both leagues had at least one strikeout with Ferguson Jenkins leading the way with six strikeouts in three innings of work.[3]

One year after becoming the first African-American umpire in Major League history, Emmett Ashford became the first African-American umpire to work an All-Star Game.[6]
