Newsreel clip on Willie Mays' dominance during baseball's 1963 All-Star Game. Clip opens with shots of 44,000 people in attendance at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium. In the second inning, with the Angels' Ken McBride pitching, Mays steals second, then scores moments later on a single by Dick Groat. In the third inning, Mays singles to score Hank Aaron, steals second again, then scores on a hit by Ed Bailey. The American League comes back to tie the game on hits by Frank Malzone of the Red Sox and Earl Battey of the Twins. (Note: you can see large sections of empty seats in the background of these shots.) National League goes ahead again in fifth when Tommy Davis moves to third on error and Mays drives him in on a groundout. Later, Joe Pepitone of the Yankees hits a long drive off the Dodgers' Don Drysdale, but Mays catches it near the 380 ft. sign in centerfield. Mays bangs his shin against the fence and limps in but is ok. Yankees' Bobby Richardson makes final out in the ninth and the National League wins 5-3.
