Although kept in the park by the aforementioned wind, all-star sophomore Roberto Clemente has a huge game, tripling and scoring the game’s first run, driving in the second with a sacrifice fly, driving Mickey Mantle to the centerfield fence, and delivering the walk-off single, off knuckleballer Hoyt Wilhelm. The game-winning rally is comprised solely of contributions by the National League’s four premier outfielders, in order of appearance: Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson and Clemente.
Stu Miller is literally blown off the mound during all star game
On July 11, 1961, San Francisco Giants pitcher Stu Miller is literally blown off the mound during the All-Star Game at Candlestick Park. In the ninth inning, high winds cause the 165-pound Miller to lose his balance. Umpires call a balk, allowing the tying run to score. The National League eventually wins, 5-4, in 10 innings.
