The 1975 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 46th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held in Milwaukee, Wi. at County Stadium, home of the American Leagues Milwaukee Brewers. The game was won by the National League 6-3.

Once again, the Nationals let the Americans get so close, only to take it away in dramatic fashion. Things looked pretty even as a tense eight innings passed and the teams were tied, 3-3, going into the ninth. Then it happened... Reggie Smith opened the inning with a single that Claudell Washington dropped after a long run. Al Oliver, pinch-hitting for Jon Matlack, doubled to left. Goose Gossage replaced Catfish Hunter to face Larry Bowa and promptly plunked him with a pitch, loading the bases. That brought Gossage eye-to-eye with Bill Madlock, who singled to left, scoring two runs. A third scored on Pete Rose's sacrifice fly.

The 1975 All-Star Game MVP's were Bill Madlock and Jon Matlack.
