In '84, the All-Star Game returned to Candlestick Park, where the National League got back to its winning ways with a 3-1 victory. NL pitchers Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden, who at age 19 was the youngest player in the game's history, combined to fan six consecutive batters in a game that featured 21 total strikeouts. All three of the batters Valenzuela struck out were future Hall of Famers -- Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson and George Brett.
