Game Recap

In the first extra-inning contest in All-Star Game history, the National League won a thriller, when the Cardinals second-baseman Red Schoendienst smacked a solo home run off Detroit's Ted Gray in the 14th inning. The American League had blown a one-run lead in the ninth inning when Art Houtteman surrendered a game-tying home run to Ralph Kiner. The game got off to a rough start, as Boston's Ted Williams fractured his left elbow when he collided into the left-field wall while robbing Kiner of an extra-base hit in the first inning.

1950: Ted's Miserable Adventure

Playing in the eighth of his 16 All-Star Games, Red Sox outfielder Ted Williams crashes into the scoreboard at Comiskey Park in Chicago in the first inning of the 1950 Midsummer Classic. Williams, who had just snared a line drive off the bat of Pittsburgh' Ralph Kiner, broke his leftelbow in the mishap and would end up playing only 89 games that year. The 1950 game was also notable because it was the first extra-innings affair in All-Star Game history, with the National League grabbing the win in 14 innings 4-3.
