The 1970 All Star Game was played in Cincinatti.
The starters were Jim Palmer of the Orioles and Tom Seaver of the Mets.
In the bottom of the 12th, Jim Hickman of the Cubs hit a single, Pete Rose of the Reds ran home and Ray Fosse ot the Indians waited to make the tag.
My guess is that no one thought that Pete Rose would crash into Fosse! It was the most bizarre ending to an All Star Game ever!
The NL won 6-5!
Ray Fosse had a great year in 1970: .307, 18 HR & 61 RBI. He played 12 seasons with Cleveland, Oakland, Seattle and Milwaukee. Fosse was a part of the great A's who won 3 straight World Series and caught 22 post season games. It's unfortunate that he will be always be remembered for that collision.
