2002 National League Records
The 2002 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 73rd playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and National League (NL). The game was held on July 9, 2002 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The game resulted in a 7-7 tie. The next year home field advantage in the World Series would be awarded to the winning league. The game is commonly referred to as a 'flop' by sports writers due to the lack of continuation of the game.
The roster selection for the 2002 game marked the inaugural All-Star Final Vote competition (then known as "The All-Star 30th Man" competition). Johnny Damon and Andruw Jones represented the American and National Leagues as a result of this contest.
