Prior to the World Series, you’ll see all the highlights of the 1970 All-Star Game at Cincinnati! This was the first of the modern All-Star Game films, which were produced until 1985. Everyone remembers the controversial finish of this game, as Pete Rose barrels into Ray Fosse at home plate to score the winning run for the Nationals in the 12th inning! Less remembered is the performance of game MVP Carl Yastrzemski, who plays two positions (8 putouts and a DP) and is 4 for 6 with a double and RBI. Jim Palmer, Sam McDowell, Tom Seaver and Claude Osteen each pitch 3 full innings (10 SO between them). Jim Hickman’s winning hit scores Rose and gives N.L. 8th straight All-Star win, 5-4! Triple, Brooks Robinson, HR Dick Dietz.


Game 1 at Riverfront Stadium: Jim Palmer vs Gary Nolan Johnny Bench’s RBI and Lee May’s HR give Reds quick 3-0 lead off Palmer, but Birds bounce back with HR’s by Boog Powell and Elrod Hendricks to knot score 3-all after 5 innings. In the 7th, Brooks Robinson’s HR provides Palmer 4-3 CG win, and his 6th inning fielding gem, robbing Lee May, is just the beginning of the 5-game “Brooks Robinson Show”! The still talked about controversial “out” call on pinch-hitter Ty Cline’s high topper in front of the plate arises in the 6th inning. The play is re-shown numerous times from different angles, with the participants commenting on the action.

Game 2 at Riverfront Stadium: Mike Cuellar vs Jim McGlothlin Lee May’s RBI and Bobby Tolan’s HR give Reds 4-0 lead after 3 innings. But big 5-run Orioles 5th chases McGlothlin. Johnny Bench’s HR brings Reds close 6-5 in the 6th, but when Reds again threaten in 7th, reliever Dick Hall arrives, pitching hitless ball, gets save.

Game 3 at Memorial Stadium: Dave McNally vs Tony Cloninger Brooks Robinson’s defensive plays prevent Reds from scoring, then his bases loaded double gives O’s lead in first inning. Frank Robinson and Don Buford HR’s boost Oriole lead to 4-1after 5. But starter Dave McNally’s grand slam HR (first by a pitcher in WS) is big blow of the game, as Baltimore takes 3-0 game lead with 9-3 victory.

Game 4 at Memorial Stadium: Gary Nolan vs Jim Palmer After 7 innings O’s lead 5-3, but Lee May’s big 3-run HR gives Reds eventual 6-5 win. Lee May is Red’s leading offensive series hitter with .389, 2 HR, 8 RBI.

Game 5 at Memorial Stadium: Mike Cuellar vs Jim Merritt Red’s 3-run first inning lead is quickly wiped out by Oriole bats. Baltimore scores 9 unanswered runs on way to 9-3 win and 4 games to 1 W.S. victory! Series MVP Brooks Robinson dazzles in the field and hits .429 with 2 doubles, 2 HR and leads O’s with 6 RBI!
