Game Recap

After a year's interruption due to war-time travel restrictions, the American League crushed the National League in the most one-sided contest in All-Star Game history, 12-0. Three American League pitchers-Bob Feller, Hal Newhouser and Jack Kramer-combined to hold the National League to three harmless singles.

1946: The War's Over

The Midsummer Classic picked up after a one-year hiatus due to World War II. Ted Williams, in his first season back after flying for the Marine Corps during the war, served notice that he was all-the-way back in this game. The Splinter was 4-for-4, had two homers, five RBIs and tied or set five All-Star Game records. Williams also provided the most electrifying moment of the AL's 12-0 rout when he teed off on Rip Sewell's famed "eephus" pitch - driving it into the right-field bullpen for his second home run of the day.
