The All-Star Game returns to New York as the recently renovated Yankee Stadium hosts the Mid-Summer Classic for the third time. The National League gets off to a quick start as Joe Morgan of the Cincinnati Reds hits a leadoff home run off Jim Palmer of the Baltimore Orioles. The National League would score four runs in the first inning and win the game 7-5, holding off a late rally by the American League. Los Angeles Dodgers ace Don Sutton allowed just one hit in three innings to win MVP honors.
