Game Recap

Boston's Max West gave the National League a three-run bulge in the first inning with a three-run dinger, and the National League won, 4-0, to record the first shutout in All-Star Game history. Manager Bill McKechnie used fresh pitchers every two innings to hold the mighty American League bats to three hits.

Red Ruffing, left, big right hander of the New York Yanks, and Paul Derringer, one of the mainstays of the Cincinnati Reds, wish each other luck just before they started in the box for the American League and National League, respectively, in the major league All-Star game at St. Louis on July 9, 1940.
