It was played at Citi Field in New York City on July 11, 2011. The NL won 5–4 in 10 innings on José Fernández's walk-off home run off AL pitcher Jered Weaver.

The game was televised by Fox in the United States and around the world through MLB International. An estimated 16 million people watched the game live television coverage on Fox. A total of 93 million people worldwide watched all or part of the game broadcast in some language other than English.

This is the third time that Citi Field has hosted the All-Star Game; it also did so in 2009. Previously, Candlestick Park in San Francisco hosted in 2001 and 2003 and Coors Field in Denver hosted in 2005 and 2007. The NL won both of the previous All-Star games played at Citi Field, by a combined score of 14–7 in 2001 and 2003.

The game was played on July 9, 1992, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. The NL won 4 to 3 in 11 innings before an audience of 45,542 fans.

The AL team was led by Cleveland Indians manager John Hart who managed his last All-Star game before dying in a plane crash a month later. The NL team was managed by Joe Torre who would go on to manage the New York Yankees for 10 seasons after leaving the Mets following the 1991 season.

The AL squad was comprised of players from 30 teams while the NL roster had players from 30 teams except for the Montreal Expos who were suspended by MLB because they didn't have a stadium ready yet. The AL won the game 4-3 in 11 innings with Willie Wilson hitting a walk-off home run off of Greg Maddux in the 12th inning.

When was the 1971 MLB All-Star Game?

The American League and National League all-stars squared off at Tiger Stadium, home of the Detroit Tigers. The All-Stars defeated their National League counterparts, 7-4, in front of a crowd of 46,856. The game was televised by NBC with Bob Lenarduzzi calling the action from behind the plate.

The All-Stars' lineup was composed of 12 players from both leagues. The AL team was led by MVP George Scott of the Boston Red Sox while the NL squad was helmed by Joe Morgan of the Cincinnati Reds.

This was the first time that the All-Star Game took place after the season had been completed. Previously, it had been played during the summer months, usually around mid-July. This change was made so that baseball could have one less game to distract fans from the start of the World Series. The last game to be played before this one was in 1970; since then, there has never been an All-Star Game during the regular season.

The reason for the National League's poor showing is still somewhat of a mystery today.

How many MLB All-Star Games have been played?

Since the first one in 1933, there have been ninety Major League Baseball All-Star Games. The American League (AL) leads the series with 45 wins and a 373-370 run margin; two games were tied. The last AL team to lose an All-Star Game was Toronto in 1985.

The National League (NL) has won thirty-five games, including five out of the last six years. The NL's only loss was to the AL in 2013.

Citi Field has hosted ten All-Star Games so far, more than any other stadium. The 2017 All-Star Game is being held on July 14th at Marlins Park in Miami Gardens, Florida. That's where it will be played until 2019 when the Yankees move into their new stadium in Bronx, New York.

In addition to the main event, the All-Star Game includes several events intended to improve the performance of each league's team during the season. These events include the Home Run Derby, which this year will be held on June 15th at Citi Field, and the All-Star Game MVP Award.

How is the MLB All-Star Game chosen?

Major League Baseball chooses the location of the All-Star Game. The site selection criteria are subjective; traditionally, cities with new ballparks and those that have not hosted the game in a long time—or ever—tend to be chosen. The All-Star Game has been held at both traditional baseball parks and non-traditional venues such as football stadiums and basketball arenas.

The last three All-Star Games were played at Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field. It is the home stadium of Major League Baseball's Chicago White Sox and had previously served as the home of the Chicago Cubs from 1991 to 2009. The commissioner's office selected Chicago over New York City, which was bidding for a third consecutive time. The first two games of the 2003 All-Star Game were held at Coors Field in Denver because of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The last game of the 2007 edition was also held at Coors Field due to concerns about weather in New York City.

In 2008, Toronto became the first Canadian city to host the All-Star Game when Blue Jays owner Rogers Communications bought out the remaining years on the Chicago White Sox's contract so that they could host the All-Star Game annually from 2010 to 2013. The 2009 game was postponed one day due to rain delays at Toronto's SkyDome.

When was the 1945 MLB All-Star Game cancelled?

After the Major League Baseball (MLB) season began on April 17, the 1945 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was canceled on April 24. The game had been scheduled for Wednesday, August 5, at Wrigley Field in Chicago. But the need to cancel the game came about because of the presence of World War II rationing codes that restricted the amount of meat that could be sold in the United States.

The cancellation of the game resulted in no loss of pay for the players who would have participated in it. They were given an extra day off with pay. And since the game had never been played before, they were also given a free pass to use as they saw fit.

During WWII, many sports events were canceled due to restrictions on travel across the United States by civilians. As well, some sports events were canceled to allow military personnel time off work or school.

Cancellations during this period included baseball games that had been scheduled between the American and National Leagues during wartime seasons of 1940 and '41. The American League had suspended its season on July 2, 1940, when the first war curfew was imposed in America's cities during World War II. The AL resumed play on September 12, after the conclusion of the war. The National League followed suit two days later.
