This Day In New York Yankees History 7/19: Yankee Stadium Hosts An All Star Game

The New York Yankees and Yankee Stadium have not hosted many All Star games in their storied history but they did on this day in 1977. The eventual World Series champion Yankees hosted the midsummer classic at the old Yankee Stadium and the American League surrendered four runs in the first inning to get things started.

The National League would beat the American League 7-5 at the newly renovated "House that Ruth Built" to mark the sixth straight victory for the NL. The NL would also win their 14th in the last 15 All Star games to keep the string of dominance going. It's a good thing the Yankees didn't lose home field advantage in the World Series because of this.
