The All-Star Game is an annual contest between the American League and National League. All of baseball pauses for three days in July in celebration of the league's best players. The game is rotated among major league cities and is traditionally played on the second Tuesday in July.

The first All-Star Game was played July 6, 1933, at Chicago's Comiskey Park. Babe Ruth, by then an aging star, hit the first home run in All Star play. The game has been played annually, except for 1945, when it was replaced by a charity game for the War. From 1959 to 1962, two games were played.

All-Star teams are traditionally managed by the prior season's World Series (pennant-winning) Managers, though there have been certain exceptions. The first All-Star teams in 1933 were managed by Connie Mack, American League, and John McGraw, National League (the prior pennant-winning managers were Joe McCarthy of the New York Yankees and Charlie Grimm of the Chicago Cubs). The 1964 American League squad was managed by Al Lopez because Ralph Houk was promoted to General Manager by the 1963 AL Pennant-winning New York Yankees.

There was some controversy in 2002, when the leagues ran out of players and the game ended in a 7-7 tie after 11 innings. Due to the outcry that players did not take the game seriously, in 2003, the winning league gained home field advantage in the World Series.

The National League currently leads the American League in All-Star Game victories, 43-40. Two games have ended in ties.

Since 1962, the All-Star Game MVP Award is given to the game's most valuable player. The Award has been called the Ted Williams Award since 2002, a year when it was, ironically, not given due to the fiasco that was that year's tie game.
