All-Star Game

UPDATED: Added 2012 attendance data for Kansas City

The Biz of Baseball has been updated with new data

With the 82nd All-Star Game being played tonight in Phoenix, we felt it was appropriate to add details for every All-Star Game that has been played, including attendance.

Here’s some tidbits, to go with:

  • This is the 82nd All-Star Game since 1933. There were two games each year from 1959-62. There was no game in 1945 due to World War II
  • Attendance all-time for all 81 games leading up tonight’s game is 3,773,679
  • Average attendance for the 81 games is 46,589
  • The highest attended game in All-Star Game history was the 1981 game at Municipal Stadium in Cleveland (72,086)
  • In fact, Municipal Stadium has the distinction of hosting the top 3 most attended All-Star Games in history (1981, 1935, 1954)
  • The lowest attended All-Star Game was the 1936 game (4th one held) at Braves Field in Boston (25,534)
  • This is the first All-Star Game to be played in Arizona.
  • Phoenix becomes the 27th city to host the All-Star Game, and the first to host the Mid-Summer Classic since Colorado hosted the 1998 All-Star Game at Coors Field
  • Chase Field becomes the 52nd different ballpark to host the Mid-Summer Classic
  • A total of 46 All-Star Games have been decided by two runs-or-less, including each of the last six games and seven of the last eight since home field advantage in the World Series has been decided by the All-Star Game.
  • A total of 26 All-Star Games have been decided by 1 run-or-less, including four of the last five and five of the last eight Mid-Summer Classics
  • The most lopsided victory in the history of the All-Star Game goes to the American League in 1946. The game at Fenway Park had the AL beat the NL 12-0.
  • Currently, the National League leads the series 42-38-2.
  • Last year’s win by the National League snapped a drought dating back to 1997
  • The 13 game unbeaten streak by the American League was the longest in All-Star Game History, surpassing the 11 straight victories that the National League had held from 1972-96
  • Here’s what’s amazing: over the previous 82 All-Star Games leading up to tonight, the AL has scored 341 runs while the National League has had 344
