This game featured the first -- and only, until 2002 -- tie in the history of the All-Star Game after rain washed away a pitchers' duel. The AL scored in the first on a solo home run from Rocky Colavito, and an RBI single from Bill White plated the NL's only run. The 1961 All-Star Games took place at two of baseball's most historic venues, Candlestick Park and Fenway Park.
