The first All-Star Game in Cincinnati came in 1938, won by the NL 4-1; only two starting position players were subbed out, and each team used only three pitchers. It was also Lou Gehrig’s last All-Star Game.
The most recent All-Star Game in Cincinnati saw a Twins pitcher (Frank Viola) get the victory and a Minnesota native (Terry Steinbach) earn MVP honors. Hey, Glen Perkins meets both those criteria! Watch the Midsummer Classic at 6 p.m. on Ch. 9.
