HISTORY LESSON

A look back at Angel All-Star history:

1967: The longest game in All-Star history--3 hours 41 minutes--was played at Anaheim Stadium. A homer by Cincinnati's Tony Perez off Oakland's Jim "Catfish" Hunter in the 15th inning gave the National League a 2-1 victory.

1973: The Angels' Nolan Ryan, who already had pitched one no-hitter, was shunned when rosters were announced. He had pitched a second no-hitter nine days before the game and baseball expanded the roster to get him in the game; the National League added aging Willie Mays. Ryan got in the game in Kansas City and gave up a home run to the Dodgers' Willie Davis in a 7-1 NL victory.

1983: The Angels' Fred Lynn hit the first grand slam in All-Star game history. His homer in Chicago's Comiskey Park was part of a seven-run third inning. Lynn was named the MVP in a 13-3 AL victory.
