2002 All-Star Game Program


The 2002 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 73rd playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held on July 9, 2002, at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisc. the home of the Milwaukee Brewers of the National League. The game resulted in a 7-7 tie.

Because Padilla and Garcia were the last pitchers available on each team, there was concern about how the game would continue. AL and NL managers Joe Torre and Bob Brenly met with Commissioner Bud Selig in the middle of the eleventh inning to discuss the situation. In a move that drew criticism, it was ruled that if the NL did not score in the bottom of the eleventh, the game would be declared a tie. The crowd in attendance roundly jeered the decision, and chants of "Let them play" were heard. Garcia retired the side in the eleventh, and the game ended in a 7-7 tie. No MVP award was given.

The only other All-Star Game to end in a tie was the second of two games in 1961, a 1-1 tie that was interrupted in the ninth inning because of rain and called after a 30-minute delay.
