1969 All-Star Game Stars


The 1969 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 40th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held in Washington, DC, at R.F.K Memorial Stadium, home of the American Leagues Washington Senators. The game was won by the National League 9-3.

The National League provided some early fireworks for the crowd which included President Richard M. Nixon. Johnny Bench hit a monster home run off the facing of RFK Stadium's second deck, and Willie McCovey hit a pair of moon-shots to power the NL to a 9-3 lead after the fourth. Pitching took over from that point as neither team could plate another run and the NL took home their seventh straight All-Star Game win.

The 1969 All-Star Game MVP was Willie McCovey of the San Francisco Giants.
