Notes

  • In 2008, Fox went on the air at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time with a special, one hour "red carpet parade" show hosted by Jeanne Zelasko and Chris Rose. Also contributing to the program were reporters Mark Grace, Laura Okmin, and Charissa Thompson. This was followed by play-by-play man Joe Buck presiding over the pregame festivities (e.g. player introductions and the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner") via the public address system.
    • The British rights-holder for this game, five (now known as Channel 5) ended its coverage at 6 a.m. BST with the game still in the 12th inning. The network explained that it had a commitment to carry the children's cartoon show The Wiggles that it could not break. The situation is similar to the infamous "Heidi Game" on the U.S. network NBC in 1968.[1]

Notes

  • In June 1993, CBS Sports' Lesley Visser suffered a jogging accident in New York's Central Park in which she broke her hip and skidded face-first across the pavement.[19] She required reconstructive plastic surgery on her face and in 2006, she required an artificial hip replacement. She returned to CBS Sports in July 1993 to cover the 1993 Major League Baseball All-Star Game as a pre-game analyst instead of a field reporter due to the accident. In Visser's place in the meantime, came Jim Kaat.

Notes

  • 1976 - The ABC team of Bob Prince, Bob Uecker and Warner Wolf alternated roles for the broadcast. For the first three innings, Prince did play-by-play with Wolf on color commentary and Uecker doing field interviews. For the middle innings, Uecker worked play-by-play with Prince on color and Wolf doing the interviews. For the final three innings, Wolf worked play-by-play with Uecker on color and Prince doing interviews.

Notes

  • The 1952 All-Star Game in Philadelphia was the first nationally televised All-Star Game, but it was shortened by rain.
  • In 1950, the Mutual Broadcasting System acquired the television broadcast rights to the World Series and All-Star Game for the next six years. Mutual may have been reindulging in TV network dreams or simply taking advantage of a long-standing business relationship; in either case, the broadcast rights were sold to NBC in time for the following season's games at an enormous profit.

Notes

  • Up until at least, the late 1970s-early 1980s, a majority of the radio announcing crews for the All-Star Game split play-by-play duties, doing either the first 4½ or last 4½ innings.
