All-Star Game[edit]

The 2002 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 73rd playing of the midsummer classic between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and National League (NL). The game was held on July 9, 2002 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The game resulted in a 7-7 tie. The next year home field advantage in the World Series would be awarded to the winning league. The game is commonly referred to as a 'flop' by sports writers due to the lack of continuation of the game.[2]

The roster selection for the 2002 game marked the inaugural All-Star Final Vote competition (then known as "The All-Star 30th Man" competition). Johnny Damon and Andruw Jones represented the American and National Leagues as a result of this contest.

Notable transactions[edit]

  • April 5, 2002: Marco Scutaro was selected off waivers by the New York Mets from the Milwaukee Brewers.[4]
  • June 4, 2002: Prince Fielder was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 1st round (7th pick) of the 2002 amateur draft. Player signed June 17, 2002.[5]
  • June 4, 2002: Hunter Pence was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 40th round of the 2002 amateur draft, but did not sign.[6]
  • July 31, 2002: Alex Ochoa was traded by the Milwaukee Brewers with Sal Fasano to the Anaheim Angels for players to be named later and Jorge Fábregas. The Anaheim Angels sent Johnny Raburn (minors) (August 14, 2002) and Pedro Liriano (September 20, 2002) to the Milwaukee Brewers to complete the trade.[1]
