Ripken's storybook blast keys fifth straight AL win
The mood was so good at the All-Star Game, the Safeco Field sellout crowd even roared for Alex Rodriguez. The midsummer classic is a game-turned-event-turned-international extravaganza, and the 72nd version had a bit of everything in a 4-1 win for the American League. [12:00 a.m. July 11, 2001]

Big Unit's start makes for big drama
Maybe Randy Johnson didn't work himself up to full lather for an exhibition, but in the end, the right man was on the mound to start for the NL. Nothing against Curt Schilling, but the All-Star Game is about electric matchups, and Johnson back pitching in Seattle gave the full potential for grand theater. [12:00 a.m. July 11, 2001]

MVP Ripken goes out perfectly
This is what perfection is. The last bit of sunlight was licking the dirt between first and second base. Thin wispy clouds floated languidly over the stadium. The flags in left-center field hung limply. It was about 6:15 on another lush summer night when Cal Ripken Jr. stepped into the batter's box to lead off the bottom of the third of a scoreless game. [12:00 a.m. July 11, 2001]
