1950 All-Star Game Program


The 1950 All-Star Game was the 17th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held on July 11, 1950, at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois the home of the Chicago White Sox of the American League. The game resulted in the National League defeating the American League 4-3.

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.
