7/9/02: 2002 All-Star Game @ Miller Park, Milwaukee

MLB Vault
American League 7 at National League 7, T/11 — There were home runs, stolen bases and amazing catches (not the least of which was Torii Hunter’s snag that robbed Barry Bonds of a home run), but the game still ended in a 7-7 a tie. With both teams’ 30-man rosters already depleted, the managers, umpires and Commissioner Bud Selig decided the 73rd All-Star game should end in a tie, if the NL could not push across the winning run in the bottom of the 11th. The managers’ use of all 30 players per side was an All-Star Game record.
