1998 All-Star Game Program


The 1998 All Star Game was the 69th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League and the National League. The game was played on July 7th, 1998 at Coors Field in Denver, Co. home of the Colorado Rockies of the National League. The game resulted in a 13-8 victory for the American League.

Nineteen ninety-eight was considered the year of the homerun as Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both set new standards by breaking the all-time single season home run record, the most revered record in all of sports.

The 1998 All-Star Game didn't disappoint either and featured three home runs and a record twenty-one combined runs as the American League beat the National League 13-8. The American League had home runs from Alex Rodriguez and Roberto Alomar and also stole five bases which set a new All-Star record.

The MVP of the 1998 all-star game was Roberto Alomar of the Baltimore Orioles.
