2005 All-Star Game Patch


The 2005 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 76th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was played on July 12th, 2005 at Comerica Park in Detroit, Mich, home of the American Leagues Detroit Tigers. The game was won by the American League 7-5.

Leading that charge was Dominican superstar shortstop Miguel Tejada of the Baltimore Orioles, who started the party with a homer, got the defense rolling with a Gold Glove-caliber play, and walked away with the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player Award presented by Chevrolet. Tejada is the fifth Latin American-born player among the last eight MVP winners.

Tejada pushed another run across in that inning with an RBI fielder's choice, and Japanese outfielder Ichiro Suzuki of the Seattle Mariners kept the pressure on with a two-run single in the fourth against Livan Hernandez.
