The 2001 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 72nd playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was played on July 10th, 2001 at Safeco Field in Seattle, Wa, home of the American Leagues Seattle Mariners. The game was won by the American League 4-1.

In the first inning, Alex Rodriguez elected to switch to third base so Cal Ripken Jr. could play his original shortstop position, which the crowd applauded. The move allowed Ripken to set the record for most MLB All-star appearances at shortstop (15). Seattle's own Ichiro Suzuki gave his hometown fans something to cheer for early, when in the first, he singled off starter (and former Mariner) Randy Johnson, and then stole second. Randy Johnson stranded him at second to hold the AL scoreless in the first inning. Ripken followed this with a solo home run in the third inning, which also got a standing ovation, to put the AL up 1–0.

The AL scored one more run in the fifth when Iván Rodríguez singled home Jason Giambi to make it 2–0. Ryan Klesko hit a sacrifice fly to cut the lead to one in the sixth, scoring Jeff Kent from third. In the sixth, with the score 2–1, Derek Jeter and Magglio Ordóńez hit back to back home runs off Jon Lieber to extend the AL's lead to 4–1.

Cal Ripken Jr. was awarded the game's MVP, becoming the fourth player ever to win two All-Star Game MVP awards.
