1970 All-Star Game

Doberman on the Diamond looks back at some of the greatest All-Star game performances and sure enough Yaz is there!
Tying a record for most hits, Yaz batted 6 times, and collected 4 knocks in a losing effort. The Rex Sox player also had 1 RBI and scored a run, but the N.L. came out on top, 5-4.
Yaz singled in the first, sixth and eighth innings. He doubled with two out in the twelfth but was stranded by Amos Otis. The NL won the game in the bottom of the twelfth on the famous Rose-Fosse collision at home plate.
