Notes[edit]

  • 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.[28] She required reconstructive plastic surgery on her face and in 2006, she required an artificial hip replacement. She missed the 1993 Major League Baseball All-Star Game due to the accident. In Visser's place in the meantime, came Jim Kaat.

Notes[edit]

  • The 1981 All-Star Game is to date, the only one to be played on a weekend (Sunday night). The game was originally to be played on July 14, but was cancelled due to the players' strike lasting from June 12 to July 31. It was then brought back as a prelude to the second half of the season, which began the following day.

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[edit]

Notes[edit]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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.
