7/13/99: 1999 All-Star Game @ Fenway Park, Boston

MLB Vault
National League 1 @ American League, 4, F — The last All-Star game of the 20th century gathered together baseball’s “All-Century” team, the greatest living players of all time. This spine-tingling spectacle was augmented by the appearance of the legend among legends, Ted Williams, on hand to throw out the first pitch. His magnetism led to one of baseball’s most spontaneous of magical moments, as the current and All-Century All-Stars gathered around the fragile Splendid Splinter, basking in his greatness for what was perhaps the last time. Finally, the game had to go on; the lovefest was dispersed and Williams tossed the first pitch in front of a delirious crowd. Then AL starting pitcher and Fenway’s own Pedro Martinez took the mound, and made a little magic of his own.
