From Ted Williams To Pedro Martinez, Boston's Most Memorable All-Star Game Moments

Tuesday night marks the 81st playing of the MLB All-Star Game, the best (albeit pretty pointless) exhibition that exists in sports. And although it doesn't count in the standings (but does decide home-field advantage in the World Series -- the only way Micheal Young will ever win a World Series MVP), the Midsummer Classic has given us a handful of classic, memorable moments.


WEEI is offering their look at the "most memorable," from Carl Hubbell striking out Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Simmons and Cronin -- in order -- in 1934, to 2002's now infamous tie. Among their top 10 moments, the Red Sox are featured three times: Ted Williams' home run on Rip Sewell's "Eephus Pitch" in 1946, The Splendid Splinter making his return before the 1999 All-Star Game, and, from the same night, Pedro Martinez's brilliant two innings.
