For the rest of the game, Wolf worked play-by-play with Uecker on color and Prince doing interviews.

NotesEdit

  • The 1967 All-Star Game in Anaheim can be considered the first "prime time" telecast[48] of a Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The game started at approximately 7:00 p.m. on the East Coast.
    • Sports Illustrated, noting that the game “began at 4 p.m. in California and ended at 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time,” reported “an estimated 55 million people watched the game, compared with 12 million viewers for the 1966 All-Star Game, played in the afternoon.”[46]
    • In 1967, Buddy Blattner, broadcaster for the host California Angels, appeared briefly at the beginning of the NBC telecast to introduce viewers to Anaheim Stadium before moving to the NBC Radio booth for the game itself. Houston Astros announcer Gene Elston was used in the same role for the 1968 game at the Astrodome.
  • The 1969 game was originally scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, July 22, but heavy rains forced its postponement to the following afternoon. The 1969 contest remains the last All-Star Game to date to be played earlier than prime time in the Eastern United States.

NotesEdit

  • During the 1955 All-Star Game, NBC director Harry Coyle introduced the center field pitcher-batter camera shot to supplement the standard behind home-plate view. The angle allowed viewers to follow the ball from the pitcher's hand all the way into the catcher's mitt.
  • The 1952 All-Star Game in Philadelphia was the first nationally televised All-Star Game, but it was shortened by rain.
  • 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.

NotesEdit

  • 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.
