Major league baseball returns in a big way from its in-season strike as 72,086 fans attend the belated All-Star Game in Cleveland. Vida Blue becomes the first pitcher to win an All-Star game for both leagues. Game MVP Gary Carter of the Expos hits a pair of solo home runs and Phillies third baseman Mike Schmidt adds a 2-run shot in the 8th off Rollie Fingers to give the National League a 5 – 4 win. It is the NL’s 10th win in a row and 17th in the last 18 games.
