2. St. Paul native Dave Winfield doubled seven times in the All-Star Game; nine players, including Twins star Tony Oliva, are runners-up with three.

3. Twins great Rod Carew tripled twice in 1978, both off San Francisco’s Vida Blue.

8. Phillies third baseman Willie “Puddin’ Head” Jones went 1-for-7 as the NL leadoff hitter in 1950.

9. Roberto Clemente batted .323 in 15 All-Star appearances but struck out four times in six at-bats in 1967.

10. There are four Twins homers in All-Star Game history — three by Harmon Killebrew, and Kirby Puckett’s solo shot off Terry Mulholland in 1993 on his way to taking MVP honors.
