Game Recap

In a high-scoring affair that saw 42 players, 25 hits, 18 runs and six errors-five committed by the National League-the American League prevailed in a slugfest, for its 12th victory in 16 games. Jackie Robinson, who became the first African-American to start an All-Star Game, opened at second base for the National League, and also cracked a double. The DiMaggio brothers, Joe and Dom, combined for four RBI and the Yankee's Vic Raschi hurled three shutout innings.

1949: The Barrier is Broken

Two years after Jackie Robinson and Larry Doby break into the Major Leagues, African-Americans play in the All-Star Game for the first time, with Roy Campanella, Larry Doby, Don Newcombe and Jackie Robinson in the lineup. The American League wins the game 11-7.
