Game Recap

The American League belted a record 17 hits to record the victory, 11-9, in the highest scoring contest in All-Star Game history. Despite two home runs by an injured Al Rosen and solo shots by Larry Doby and Ray Boone, the biggest hit was a bloop single by Nellie Fox in the eighth that gave the American League the win.

1954: Big Bats

Cleveland's Municipal Stadium was packed with 69,000 people for the 21st All-Star Game and what a classic it would prove to be. The teams combined for a total of 20 runs and the lead see-sawed back and forth all game long. The Tribe's Al Rosen thrilled the hometown faithful with two homers in a game which featured a total of six blasts. The American League finally snapped the NL's four-game win streak with an eighth-inning rally capped by a two-run single from the Pale Hose's Nellie Fox.
