TBT: Watch the 73rd MLB All Star End in a Tie
Do you remember when a Major League Baseball All-Star Game ended in a tie?
Well, let me set the stage for one of the most embarrassing moments in MLB history.
In 2002, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game was played in Milwaukee at Miller Park, the home of the Milwaukee Brewers.
The game featured some of the best the game has ever seen from Alex Rodriguez to Ichiro Suzuki to Pedro Martinez to Roy Halladay to Randy Johnson.
It featured Barry Bonds carrying Tori Hunter after Hunter robbed him of a home run.
It featured Joe Torre managing the American League team and Bob Brenly managing the National League team.
It featured stolen bases and two home runs on the way to a total of 14 runs.
Watch for yourselves the 73rd MLB All-Star Game ended in a 7-7 tie.
After the 2002 MLB All-Star Game ended in a tie, Major League Baseball tweaked the rules so that the league winner of the MLB All-Star Game got to have home-field advantage in the World Series.
As dumb as the tie was in 2002, the idea that the team who had home-field advantage in the World Series was determined off the winner of an exhibition game was even dumber.
Eventually, MLB would change again and fix the decision they made after the 2002 All-Star Game but everyone will remember the year the All-Star Game ended in a tie.
