Red Schoendienst's home run in the top of the 14th inning was the key blow that gave the National League a 4-3 triumph at the 1950 All-Star Game in Chicago in the first extra-inning Mid-Summer Classic ever. The very ball Red crushed was retrieved from Comiskey Park's upper deck and is available here and now. The heavily decorated ball in red and black ink does show game use underneath the writing that features the linescore, total game receipts, voluminous game stats and statements such as: "RED IS BIGGEST HERO IN GREATEST ALL-STAR GAME." One long glance at this ball and you'll feel as if you were in the stands watching the game live. A defensive replacement in the bottom of the 11th inning, Red only came to the plate once in the game, and it proved to be the most important at-bat of the game. Schoendienst only hit 84 homers over his career (an average of only six per season) but he was a slugging superstar on that fateful day!
