Home runs:

The NL scored first when Dick Allen, the lead off batter in the top of the second inning, hit a home run off of AL pitcher Dean Chance.[4]

The AL tied the score in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, Brooks Robinson hit a home run off of NL relief pitcher Ferguson Jenkins.[4] The score remained unchanged through the ninth inning, forcing the game into extra innings. In the top of the 15th inning, Tony Pérez hit a one-out home run off of AL pitcher Catfish Hunter, then in his fifth inning of relief, to give the NL a lead it would not relinquish.[4]

Game notes and records

Rod Carew became the first (and as of 2008, only) rookie second baseman to start an All-Star Game.[5]

The two teams' pitching staffs combined for 30 strikeouts. Until 2008, this would be the All-Star Game record for most combined strikeouts in a single game.[2] Each of the 12 pitchers used by both leagues had at least one strikeout with Ferguson Jenkins leading the way with six strikeouts in three innings of work.[3]

One year after becoming the first African-American umpire in Major League history, Emmett Ashford became the first African-American umpire to work an All-Star Game.[6]

1967 Los Angeles Dodgers season

The 1967 Los Angeles Dodgers season marked the end of the franchise's most successful era on the ballpark. One season after losing the World Series to the Baltimore Orioles, the Dodgers declined to a record of 73–89, and finished ahead of only the Houston Astros and the New York Mets in the National League race, 28½ games behind the NL and World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Dodgers' worst record since the war-affected 1944 season, and their worst peacetime record since 1937. The Dodgers would not return to the postseason until 1974.

1967 Philadelphia Phillies season

The 1967 Philadelphia Phillies season consisted of the Phillies' 82–80 finish, good for fifth place in the National League, 19½ games behind the NL and World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. The Phillies would not finish above .500 again until 1975.

1968 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

The 1968 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 39th playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball.

The game was held on July 9, 1968, at the Astrodome in Houston, Texas the home of the Houston Astros of the National League, making this the first All-Star Game to be played indoors. The game resulted in the National League defeating the American League 1–0. It is the only All-Star Game ever played without a run batted in (RBI).

This was the first night All-Star Game since 1944. Apart from the 1969 game (which was originally scheduled to be played at night but was postponed to the following afternoon due to rain), all subsequent All-Star Games have been played at night.
