On July 7 1936 – The National League, having lost the first three All-Star Games, wins the 1936 All-Star Game, 4 – 3 at Boston’s National League Park with four different Cub players (Augie Galan, Billy Herman, Gabby Hartnett and Frank Demaree) scoring runs. After Dizzy Dean and Carl Hubbell each pitch scoreless three-inning stints, Curt Davis is hammered by the American League, including Lou Gehrig’s home run, but Lon Warneke shuts the door. Meanwhile, the NL is helped by Joe DiMaggio’s loose fielding and error and Augie Galan’s home run. Joe DiMaggio is the first rookie to play in an All-Star Game. The NL plays its starting lineup except for two late-inning pinch hitters. Local favorite and three-time starter Wally Berger doesn’t appear. Missing from the NL roster are Dolph Camilli and Buck Jordan, co-leaders in the batting race at .348, as well as the eventual batting champ, Paul Waner
