Greatest New York Yankees Moments In All-Star Game History

2008: Yankee Stadium Hosts It’s Final All-Star Game

Sadly, this year marked the last time baseball’s best would come to one of the most historic venues across baseball- Yankee Stadium. As the new one was being built across the street, fans got to soak in this cathedral one last time and the baseball Gods didn’t want this one to end.

The contest lasted 15 innings for just under five hours with the American League prevailing by a score of 4-3 win after Michael Young hit a walk-off sacrifice fly off Brad Lidge to score Justin Morneau.

This one tied the longest All-Star game in terms of innings and set the all-time record for longest All-Star game by time (four hours and 50 minutes).

Again, the Gods just didn’t want to see the curtain close on such an important part of baseball history.
