Baltimore hosts the Major League Baseball All-Star Game for the first time in 1958. 48,000 fans, most in white shirts, crowd Memorial Stadium for the game.

With game tied 3-3 in the sixth inning, American League gets two men on base after National League mishandles infield roller by Ted Williams. Yankee Gil McDougald (seen in closeup) hits a bloop single to score Frank Malzone and put American League ahead 4-3, which would be the final score. Baltimore fans cheer Oriole pitcher Billy O'Dell, who pitched a scoreless final three innings to earn a save. Del Crandall of Milwaukee Braves pops up for the final out.
