One of the greatest All Star Games was played at Tiger Stadium 40 years ago

Andrew Norton

It is the All-Star Game oft remembered for the mammoth home run that was shot off the bat of a young Reggie Jackson. Back when Tiger stadium was a sea of green before the city of Detroit purchased it and tore out the green seats and replaced them with orange and blue ones. Back when the All-Star Game meant something to those who played in it without having the silliness of the games' result determining home-field advantage for the World Series. Ernie Harwell had said that it was the hardest hit ball he had ever seen. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself.
