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.

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.
