Game Recap

The Diamond Jubilee Game featured 13 hits-all singles-as the American League won, 4-3. The first hit came on the game's first pitch, to San Francisco's Willie Mays, who later scored. But two American League singles in the sixth by Frank Malzone and Gil McDougald provided the difference for the American League.

1958: All Singles

U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon was on hand to toss out the ceremonial first pitch as Baltimore hosted it's first Midsummer Classic. The 1958 All-Star Game was the first game in the series to have no extra-base hits. All 13 of the hits recorded in the game were singles -- nine for the AL and four for the NL -- with each team committing two errors. The game was tight throughout, with the AL scoring the eventual game-winning run on a single by the Yankees' Gil McDougald after a costly error by third baseman Frank Thomas of the Pirates. The AL held the NL scoreless after the second inning and came away with a 4-3 victory.
