On this day in baseball

2007:

Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki records the first inside-the-park home run in All-Star Game history when he hits Chris Young’s fastball into deep right-center field at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.The fifth inning blast caroms off the park’s quirky configuration and continues to bounce away from NL center fielder Ken Griffey Jr., allowing the American League leadoff hitter, who will be named the game’s MVP, to complete his way around he bases for the historic round-tripper.

Fun Fact

Every big league hitter with an OPS over .900 is going to the All-Star Game except Alex Rodriguez.
