ALL-STAR GAME INSIDER
Tuesday, July 15 • 7 p.m.
Only 84 All-Star Games have been played, or barely more than half the number that each major league team plays per season. With so few games, All-Star history is dotted with lots of statistical anomalies. This week, let’s explore a few of them, in the form of a quiz about All-Star hitters:
1. Who is the only player ever to go 4-for-4 in an All-Star Game?
2. Who has the most doubles in All-Star Game history, more than double any other player, yet never more than one in a game?
3. Who is the only player to triple twice in an All-Star Game?
4. Who is the most recent player to hit a triple in the Midsummer Classic — which was his only triple of the season?
5. Who has hit the most career home runs in All-Star competition?
6. What active player has the most career home runs as an All-Star?
7. Five players have homered twice in an All-Star game — who was the most recent?
8. Who is the only player with seven at-bats in an All-Star Game?
9. Who is the only player to strike out four times in an All-Star Game?
10. Who was the last Twins player to hit an All-Star home run?
1. Ted Williams, who singled twice and homered twice (and also walked once) before his Fenway Park fans in 1946.
