Game Recap

In the final year of two All-Star Games, the leagues traded wins. The National League grabbed the opener thanks to three hits by Roberto Clemente. The American League evened things up-and won its last Midsummer Classic during the 1960s-on home runs by Pete Runnels, Leon Wagner and Rocky Colavito.

1962: Speed Wills

President John F. Kennedy was on hand to throw out the first pitch in brand-new D.C. Stadium (now RFK Stadium). Both teams were packed with powerful hitters like Willie Mays, Frank Robinson, Mickey Mantle and Harmon Killebrew, but it would be the speed of Maury Wills that would prove to be the story. The Dodgers' speedy shortstop entered the game in the sixth to pinch-run for Stan Musial (making his 23rd All-Star appearance) and immediately stole second, then scored the game's first run on a single by Pirate Dick Groat. In the eighth, after getting on with a single, he rounded second on a hit by the Giants' Jim Davenport, and with the throw sailing towards second base, sped down to third, where he then scored on a foul pop. Wills was named MVP for his feats in leading the NL to a 3-1 victory.
