Firsts in Phillies All-Star history
MLB.com
Major League Baseball's first All-Star Game was played at Comiskey Park in Chicago on July 6, 1933. The American League, managed by Connie Mack of the Philadelphia A's, beat the National League, 4-2, before a crowd of 47,595.

The Phillies had two NL starters, right fielder Chuck Klein (1-4, batting third) and shortstop Dick Bartell (0-2, batting seventh).

Philadelphia native Jimmy Wilson was the NL's starting catcher as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals. Following that season, he was dealt back to the Phillies where he became their first All-Star catcher in 1935.
