Biographical / Historical
The first official Major League Baseball All-Star Game featuring teams representing the American League and the National League was played on July 6, 1933. From 1959 through 1962, Major League Baseball played two All-Star Games per season to raise money for the players’ pension fund. No All-Star Games were played in 1945 (due to wartime travel restrictions) or 2020 (due to the Covid-19 pandemic).
