The MLB All-Star Game has been the Mid-Summer classic since 1933. It was so popular back in the early days of its inception that baseball decided to make it happen twice a year from 1959-1962.
The game starting awarding a Most Valuable Player award in 1962. The Dodgers Maury Wills demonstrated that speed kills as he took the first MVP for the first All-Star game in 1962, when he pinch ran for Stan Musial, stole second base and scored on a Dick Groat single.
Wills stayed in the game at shortstop, singled in his next at bat, went from first to third on a Jim Davenport single and scored on a sacrifice fly from Felipe Alou to help the National League win 3-1.
This was hardly a dominant performance, but in discussing it and doing some research, we decided to look up and rank the most dominating performances in the history of the All-Star game. At first this list came in the form of a Top 15. However, since David Letterman recently retired, let’s honor him by making it a Top 10.
