CFrom 1963-1982 the AL won once....the '71 game at Tiger Stadium.

That’s what made the 1983 AL 13-3 trouncing of the NL and Lynn’s grand slam so special.  All my friends in Tucson were from Detroit and we watched the game together and damn if we weren’t happy because of it. We were even happier the next year.

In the 70s I was a kid and the all-star game was as big as christmas. Yesterday's game was the first I've watched in 20 years - and that's mostly because I just had knee replacement surgery and am laid up. I will say it's amazing how many young stars are dominating mlb.

They said that the average age was about 27

Jim Bouton (ASG 1963) is dead. Instead of a moment of silence, are we supposed to pop some beanies and go beaver shooting as a tribute to him?

RIP.....if you have Netflix check out "the Battered Bastards of Baseball." Bouton is in it. Documentary about an independent minor league team owned by Kurt Russell's father in the 70s

********.  Off to the afterworld, maybe meeting up to pound some Budweiser with Joe Schultz?

If I remember correctly, Kurt's father was the bat boy for the Yankees in the 30's and had a Lou Gehrig *signed* bat, which would be rare in its own right, but that bat also happened to be the bat that Lou hit his last MLB HR with.

His grandson, Kurt's nephew, is Matt Franco (former MLB player), IIRC.

that was a cool documentary with a lot of interesting tidbits.  I highly recommend.
