The first All-Star Game

The first All-Star Game was held on July 6, 1933 as part of the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago, at Comiskey Park (1910–1990) and was initiated by Arch Ward, then sports editor for the Chicago Tribune.  Initially intended to be a one-time event, its great success resulted in making the game an annual one.
