Now this will expose my bias but I am clear on that. You will see a lot of references to the All-Star game and the Junior Circuit. Who is the Junior Circuit? The American League of course. Who else would it be?

On July 10, 1984, the National League beats the Junior Circuit at Candlestick Park, 3-1. Home runs hit by Expos’ catcher Gary Carter, the game’s MVP, and Braves’ outfielder Dale Murphy prove to be the difference in the 55th Midsummer Classic. Another reason I love Dale Murphy.

Candlestick Park was great. The new field for the Giants is very nice but Candlestick had a “nice feel” to it.
