History of the MLB All-Star game – 1960
Game 1 – National League 5,
American League 3
The two All-Star Games of 1960 were played nearly back-to-back on July 11 at Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium and July 13 at New York’s Yankee Stadium.
In the first game, the National League jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning with a leadoff triple off Bill Monbouquette by Willie Mays. Mays scored on a single by Bob Skinner and, with two out, Ernie Banks homered. The NL added single runs in the second and third and tried to hold on. After scoring one in the sixth and two in the eighth to cut the lead to 5-3, the AL tried to stir something up in the ninth. They got two on with one out, but Verne Law retired Brooks Robinson and Harvey Kuenn.
Banks, with a double and homer, and Mays, with a single, double and triple, were the stars as the doubleheader headed east.
