The Midsummer Classic
The stars of Major League Baseball are spending part of their week in Cincinnati to take part in the annual “Midsummer Classic” as the best from the National League will battle the best the American League has to offer. Chicago stars Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Chris Sale will be on the national stage to represent Windy City baseball against the rest of the league.
The All-Star Game and Chicago have a long history together. The first ever All-Star game was played at old Comiskey Park on July 6, 1933 as part of the World’s Fair. The American League won 4-2 in front of 47.595 fans.
In 1983 Fred Lynn, of the California Angels, hit the only grand slam in All-Star Game history at Comiskey Park helping to end an 11 year losing streak for the American League. The White Sox and the Cubs have hosting a combined seven Midsummer Classics since the game’s inception.
