The 1977 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 48th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held in New York, NY. at Yankee Stadium, home of the American Leagues New York Yankees. The game was won by the National League 7-5.

Jim Palmer took the mound, but his performance would leave much to be desired. He only lasted two innings, gave up five runs on five hits, walked one and was the losing pitcher. Joe Morgan led off with a home run. Dave Parker singled and then scored on a George Foster double. Then Greg Luzinski homered for a 4-0 lead before the fans had even sat down.

The 1977 All-Star Game MVP was Don Sutton.
