All-Star Memories series

The Seattle Times has been taking a weekly look at memorable moments from the mid-summer classic, leading up to the 72nd game July 10 at Safeco Field:

Callison's crowning glory
Johnny Callison of the Philadelphia Phillies propels the National League to victory in the 1964 All-Star Game, hitting a winning two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Bo definitely knows baseball
In 1989, two-sport star Bo Jackson of the Kansas City Royals tendered one of the most amazing All-Star performances ever, including hitting a tape-measure home run off NL starter Rick Reuschel.

Robinson broke another barrier in 1949
The 1949 All-Star Game at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field is memorable because it was the first to involve African-American players, including Jackie Robinson, who broke baseball's color barrier two years earlier.

The night Reggie launched a rocket
He wasn't even supposed to be there, but an injury put Reggie Jackson in the game, and the Oakland slugger left a lasting imprint with a home run of mythical proportions at Tiger Stadium.

When the wind blows: Stu Miller in 1961
Stu Miller, a slender relief pitcher for the Giants, gets "blown off" the mound in the ninth inning of the 1961 All-Star Game at Candlestick Park.

Pain lingers 31 years after violent crash
Ray Fosse's 1970 collision with Pete Rose still hurts - physically and emotionally.

Stan the Man ends game with a bang
St. Louis Cardinal Stan Musial launched a Frank Sullivan fastball into the right-field seats in the 12th inning in 1955 to give the National League the win in one of the more dramatic finishes in All-Star history.

Teddy Ballgame: King of Swing
Boston's Ted Williams, the greatest player in All-Star history, goes 4 for 4 and smacks two homers, including Rip Sewell's infamous "eephus pitch" at Fenway Park.

King Carl's five K's an All-Star gem
New York Giants ace Carl Hubbell strikes out, in order, future Hall of Famers Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin in 1934.
