Rain shortened the 1952 All-Star Game at Shibe Park in Philadelphia to a five-inning affair. The National League picked up a 3-2 victory after Hank Sauer's two-run homer had put it on top in the bottom of the fourth. Jackie Robinson opened the scoring in the bottom of the first with a solo homer, the only home run he'd hit in the Midsummer Classic.
