There was no shortage of star power on display in the 1956 Midsummer Classic at Griffith Stadium in Washington, D.C. The game featured home runs by four all-time legends -- Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams. Musial's two-run shot in the seventh put the NL ahead, 7-3, the final score.
