2006 All-Star Game Patch


The 2006 All-Star Game of Major League Baseball was the 77th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League and National League. The game was held on July 10, 2006, at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pa. the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League. The game resulted in the American League defeating the National League 3-2.

Michael Young came up big in the ninth inning on Tuesday night at PNC Park, drilling the two-strike pitch into the gap in right-center for the two-run triple that won the game for the AL, 3-2. Mariano Rivera did what Hoffman couldn't do: shut down the NL in the ninth. And minutes later, Young was on the field accepting the Ted Williams MVP trophy from Commissioner Bud Selig, not to mention the keys to a Chevy truck.
