Who Knew #22 The Last Major League Baseball All Star Game in Los Angeles

Who knew that the last time the Los Angeles Dodgers hosted a MLB All Star game was in 1980. That is exactly 35 years ago without an All Star Game in Hollywood. There has been many teams who have already hosted the Summer Classic at least twice since 1980. As of now there is not set feature date for an All Star Game in LA, however the earliest Dodger Stadium can host would be after the 2018 season.


 
If you are interested in reliving that game you can watch the entire game on this YouTube video

This All-Star Game would be known for some exemplary pitching performances. The game resulted in a 4-2 victory for the National League and the MVP of the game was Ken Griffey Sr. who played for the Cincinnati Reds.
