July 6 - 1933 - The First Major League Baseball All-Star Game

In 1933, Arch Ward, the Sports Editor of The Chicago Tribune, came up with the idea of a baseball all-star game. Held at Comiskey Park on Chicago's Southside, home of the White Sox, the game pitted the best players of the National League and American League, as chosen by fans. This game would become the template for the many different All-Star Games that now populate American sports, and it also featured many of the issues found in those game.
