1933: Babe Ruth Hits First Home Run In All-Star Game History

Just leave it to the Great Bambino to be the first player in Major League Baseball history to hit a home run in the All-Star game.

The first ever contest like the one you’re about to see tonight was being played at Comiskey Park, home of the Chicago White Sox and Babe Ruth went 2-for-4 including a two-run blast over the wall in right field to put the American League up 3–0.

Another Yankees’ representative, Lefty Gomez threw three scoreless innings to record the first win in the 1933’s World Fair.

Ruth’s home run, however, stood out above all for not only fueling his league to a prevailing effort but for making the exhibition game such a success that it became part of the sport’s many traditions still to this day.
