All of baseball’s best players come together one time a year, and QueenBeeTickets.com is pleased to offer discount MLB All-Star Game tickets to this event. Major League Baseball takes four days off from its regular season for this contest that takes place on the second Tuesday in July. One exciting aspect to this game is that the winner of the Midsummer Classic between the American and National League All-Stars earns home-field advantage for that league's champion in the World Series later that year.
The first All-Star Game was held in 1933 at Comiskey Park, the home of the Chicago White Sox. Arch Ward is credited with coming up with the idea. Although this was intended to be the only edition, it received such fanfare that a second one was quickly scheduled, and it has been held on an annual basis ever since. Many who will take advantage of the discount MLB All-Star Game tickets that QueenBeeTickets.com has available know about Carl Hubbell’s amazing game at the 1934 event. He incredibly struck out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin in succession.
Comiskey Park was also the site of the first extra-inning contest in the game's history. Any fans who purchased discount MLB All-Star Game tickets for this game in 1950 received the bonus of a 14-inning contest, a 4-3 win for the NL squad. The winning team also dramatically tied the contest in the ninth inning when Ralph Kiner hit a home run.
MLB All-Star Game Tickets For Sale
Those who purchased MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale in 1959, 1960, 1961 or 1962 had the choice of two games each year. Sometimes the games were a month apart, and on other occasions the games were played as close as two days apart. However, this ended as fan interest in the games appeared to be declining because of the overexposure. There have been at least one All-Star Game held every season with the exception of 1945 due to severe World War II travel restrictions that year.
One of the exciting changes that has been made was giving the winning league home-field advantage for its champion in the World Series. This first went into effect in 2003 to the delight of those with MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale for that contest. This historic game was also hosted by the Chicago White Sox, this time at U.S. Cellular Field. The AL team pulled out a 7-6 win that evening.

Fans are then given the opportunity to vote from a list of five players provided by each All-Star team’s manager.
MLB All-Star Game Tickets Online
The best deal for those who purchased MLB All-Star Game tickets online came in 2008 as that game went 15 innings. It tied the All-Star Game record for most innings and set the mark for longest by time at 4:50. It was played at Yankee Stadium in New York and was tied 3-3 entering the ninth inning. However, both teams then fell into hitting slumps as neither team scored the following six innings before the AL team won it, 4-3, in the 15th.
The 1967 contest also went 15 innings. It was played at Anaheim Stadium in California and was a fascinating pitcher’s dual throughout. The NL scored a lone run in the second off of a home run by Dick Allen, and the AL equalized in the sixth with a solo blast by Brooks Robinson. Zero after zero followed for the next eight innings until the NL squad won it, 2-1, with a Tony Perez home run in the 15th.

Bobby Abreu has the record for most home runs during the Derby as he hit 41 during the 2005 event.

Teams that have played host to both the All-Star Game and the World Series in the same year number just eight. Cleveland most recently did it in 1997 in Progressive Field.
