The 2015 MLB All-Star game may just be an exhibition, but this exhibition has brought us plenty of memorable moments throughout the years.

On July 14th the American League and National League will battle it out for the right to control home field advantage during the World Series.
It is the 2015 MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
Prior to making the game “count,” players played for pride and the name on the front of their jersey, not the back.
In 1933 Arch Ward of the Chicago Tribune came up with the idea to pit the best players from both leagues in a one time exhibition game. 82-years later it has turned into a global event and became a summer classic hosted by MLB.
Every baseball fan has that special moment from prior All-Star games. Mine was sitting next to pops and waiting for my favorite New York Yankees to be introduced each season.
There was no better feeling then getting to stay up late and seeing Don Mattingly get introduced and wonder how he will fair against the best of the best.
So crack open a brew, grab a bag of peanuts or Cracker Jacks and enjoy a stroll down memory lane as this is our Top 5 MLB All-Star moments of all time.
