Joe Dimaggio became the first rookie to play in an All-Star Game during the 1936 Midsummer Classic at Braves Field in Boston. But his presence went largely unnoticed as he finished 0-for-5. Lou Gehrig homered as part of a three-run seventh, but it wasn't enough, and the National League held on for its first All-Star Game win, 4-3.
