Perez Home Run 50 Years Back

July 10, 2017

Once the All Star Game mattered.

Fifty years ago, the Cincinnati Reds’ player, Tony Perez’ 15th inning home run lifted the National League (2-1) over the American League in Anaheim, California.

Tom Seaver, a rookie pitcher with the New York Mets saved the victory.

Ten years later free agency, let them make the money though it is a “bit” much, but not affect team balance (see the “joke” NBA), was in its first real season and Perez, was no longer with Cincy when the Reds traded for Tom Seaver.

None of that was good, nor is baseball today and the All Star Game means nada.

The Perez home run and ’67 All Star Game is a good memory, however.
